Commute of the Species Puppet Workshop

Commute of the Species: A Puppet Procession in Katonah
Puppet Workshops
Sundays, April 25, and May 2
1:00 - 4:00 pm
As part of the Katonah Museum of Art's exhibition The Art of Contemporary Puppet Theater, PAW has been commissioned to create a site-specific puppet performance designed for the Metro–North Commuter Rail. The piece, entitled Commute of the Species, will inhabit a designated Metro–North car en route from NYC emerging as a full-fledged procession in Katonah. Deploying an accumulation of puppets to chronicle the arrival of non-native animal and animal species in the Hudson River Valley, Commute of the Species will transform the everyday commuter experience into an allegory of migration, habitat expansion, and unforeseen consequences – in effect, condensing 400 years of eco-history into a single one-hour train ride.

Sunday, April 25, 1:00 - 4:00 pm: Help put the finishing touches on the puppets for the procession.

Free. Call (914) 232-9555 ext. 0 to sign up.
