Tree Pop

Sunday, December 10, 2:00 pm–3:00 pm
Here Art Center (145 6th Avenue @ Dominick Street)

In a presentation from HERE’s Dream Music Puppetry Program (Basil Twist, Artistic Director), six performers bring a miniature, winter mountain village to life using a variety of puppetry techniques including direct manipulation, shadow, and large-scale figures worn by the performers. Eccentric characters abound including a forest of trees who grow, walk, and dance; a train conductor who beckons passengers to explore the village and woods; a poet who houses a family of displaced birds in his beard; and a woman who lifts off the ground in her pigeon shoes. As their wordless encounters play out accompanied by John Dyer’s sparse Americana-influenced score,, a creature lurks on the edges of the town.
