Interdisciplinary artist Gregory Corbino’s puppets, sound, and movement transform Battery Park City into a seascape of androgenous oysters, stunning sturgeon and captivating cetaceans.

On the grass lawn of Teardrop Park, participants learn the puppetry art of fish murmuration starting at 6:30 pm. At 7 pm, participants parade to Rockefeller Park where giant puppets inspired by biodiversity of New York Harbor join the murmuration, creating a cacophonous confluence of city and sea, a puppet poem that seeks a new relationship to this blue planet.

Part of the River to River Festival, rescheduled from June 12.
