Like prehistoric sediment, the walls of a building often contain traces and impressions of lives once lived. Liz Parker and Rachel Sullivan created this Manhattan production, for children 7 and older, after a visit to the Tenement Museum on the Lower East Side, where they learned of the old apartments’ many layers of wallpaper, each applied by an immigrant family. Set within a tenement that is about to be torn down and whose interior is plastered with 40 layers, this show uses masks, toy-theater techniques and puppets designed by Spica Wobbe to imagine the proud and perilous histories of the building’s Italian, Jewish and Irish occupants.
Ideal for ages 7 and up.
