There are 40 layers of wallpaper on the walls of an aging New York City tenement building. Each layer contains stories of everyday Italian, Jewish and Irish immigrants surviving storms, building bridges, creating new policies and shaping a new American identity. The steady walls of this aging building have been keeping these stories safe for over 100 years, but soon the building will be torn down. What will happen to these extraordinary stories of ordinary immigrants when the wrecking ball arrives? The building is determined to save the stories even if it can’t save itself. Brought to life with puppetry, mask, live action and music.
March 1 @ 8pm, March 2 @ 8pm, March 3 @ 3pm & 8pm, March 4 @ 3pm
Layer the Walls was part of New Victory LabWorks in 2016 and is generously supported by a Jim Henson Foundation Family Grant.
