About the Performance (from Arm-of-the-Sea Theater’s Website):
City That Drinks The Mountain Sky is the epic story of NYC’s water supply told in the elemental beauty of mask & puppet theater.
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 our city homes. Although the struggle over these water resources has, at times, bitterly divided city managers and watershed residents, it has also irrevocably united them.
On the banks of the East River, City that Drinks the Mountain Sky will bring alive the lyrical landscape of the Catskills-to portray the on-going story of the watershed and uneasy marriage of those who must protect its vulnerable flowing treasure. You can expect plenty of visual punch and timely wit as this premier eco-logic theater traces life’s quintessential liquid from mountain top to our city taps.
