Jul 29 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Between Warren & Murray Street at North End Avenue Lower Manhattan

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

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.
