Grand Pistachio & Brooklyn College will present a free family performance of Layer the Walls followed by puppetry and dance workshops. In one tenement apartment in NYC’s Lower East Side, forty layers of wallpaper were found clinging to the walls - each piece applied by a new immigrant family. Using puppetry, masks and live action, Layer the Walls tells the incredible stories of Irish, Italian, Jewish, Chinese and Puerto Rican families. Best for ages 8 and up.
