Sewage in the Aquifer
Durational Performance
Performance commissioned for the Beaches and Bays Gala
Long Island Nature Conservancy
Bridgehampton, NY.

Topiary stage design by Tucker Marder

Like the “Things” performance, this is a durational, improvised puppet performance where an unseen puppeteer raises and lowers signs on sticks over the topiary wall. Each time a shape appears, they call out a name for the thing in a booming voice. Over the course of the evening, each sign is assigned a new name. This iteration was more dependent on subject matter pertaining to the benefit: clean water, sewage, and beaches.
