Esopus Creek Puppet Suite 


Puppetry is an ancient art form, over 3,000 years old. Ivory and clay articulated puppets were found in tombs in ancient Egypt. In ancient Greece, Aristotle and Plato referenced puppets in writing. Ceremonial puppets were also used in pre-Columbian Native American cultures. It could be that puppets came before real life actors in theater. Today, Arm-of-the-Sea Theater combines both actors and puppets together in socially conscious performances in theaters and schools around the region. Once a year, the troupe puts on its Esopus Creek Puppet Suite at Tina Chorvas Park in Saugerties, a three-night stand of puppetry in performance. This year's show is a retrospective, revisiting previous works like "The City That Drinks the Mountain Sky" and "The Rejuvenary River Circus." August 19-21, 8pm.
