Surrealist Puppet Performance Comes to DUMBO

Ballenarca is coming to the Pearl Street Triangle! This international collective of puppeteers, musicians, dancers and performers is on tour throughout the USA, and stopping in DUMBO for an extra special, free performance on Monday, August 10 from 5 – 6pm in the Pearl Street Triangle.

Ballenarca (a combo of the Spanish words ballena–­whale–and arca–ark) is a surrealist puppet experience and immersive, interactive sculpture in the shape of giant whale. The magical world of Ballenarca showcases bicycle creations, handmade instruments, dance, music and more. This family friendly performance is free, interactive, and unlike anything DUMBO’s ever seen!
