Theater, Arm-of-the-Sea City That Drinks the Mountain Sky History,
Nature- Environment,
Performing Arts- Puppetry
The epic story of water for New York City, told in the elemental beauty of mask & puppet theatre. Heralded as one of the wonders of the world, New York City's ingenious system of aqueducts and reservoirs provides clear mountain water from the Catskills to nine million downstate residents. And though the struggle over these water resources has, at times, bitterly divided city managers and watershed residents, it has also irrevocably united them. Through a shimmering tapestry of poetry, puppetry and evocative music, City that Drinks the Mountain Sky brings alive the lyrical landscape of the Catskills— to portray the on-going story of the watershed and the uneasy marriage of those who must protect its vulnerable flowing treasure. You can expect plenty of visual punch and timely wit as the Hudson Valley's premier eco-logic theater traces life's quintessential liquid from mountain top to city tap. Study guide and post performance discussion provided for school audiences. Photos and video available at www.armofthesea.org
