Little Amal, a traveling giant puppet of a 10 year old Syrian refugee girl, explores Brooklyn Bridge Park. Chasing pigeons, Amal comes across a gathering of children and families all making their own pigeon puppets. Musicians start to gather and before she knows it, she is surrounded by a flock of pigeons. Together they lead her across the Brooklyn Bridge towards Manhattan.

A participatory family event led by St. Ann’s Warehouse, Robin Frohardt and Fogo Azul in collaboration with Students Rebuild, a program of the Bezos Family Foundation.
