Conceived by director and theatermaker Dina Vovsi, Canoe Play is a site-specific, journey-based theatrical experience on a 14-seat Langley canoe in Newtown Creek inspired by the waterway’s environmental challenges and resilience, and will be created in partnership with the North Brooklyn Community Boathouse. Audience members will board a 29-foot Langley canoe, which can accommodate up to 14 paddlers. In order for the play to move, the boat must move, and the audience - an essential part of the story - must work together to paddle.
