City That Drinks the Mountain Sky, Part Two

When: Sat., April 6, 2 p.m. 2019
The Jerry Bartlett Angling Collection at the Phoenicia Library and Phoenicia Elementary School are teaming up to present a performance by Arm of the Sea Theater. With outrageously colorful masks and costumes, hand-painted sets, amazing puppets and live music, the cast traces the journey of water from mountains to the tap, telling the story of the issues and developments, scientific and cultural, of the last 20 years in the Catskill watershed of New York City’s water supply system. These include climate change, aging infrastructure, and the emergence of a network of urban and watershed stewards intent on protecting this vital resource. The cast of vibrant characters includes Finn McCullough, construction worker; Ms. Bonaventure’s fourth grade class, a group of smart young city kids represented by 30 portraits painted by young people; Abraham Wolburn, sixth generation Catskill Mountain farmer; Clair Abacas, a DEP engineer, and “the Displaced Ones,” spirits of former mountain residents whose homes were claimed by reservoirs.
