About the Show

What if you discovered an old apartment covered with forty layers of wallpaper? What if these layers could be peeled back to reveal the stories of past tenants? Layer the Walls explores stories of a tenement apartment in New York City that was once home to hundreds of new immigrants. Shadow and Bunraku puppetry, along with masks bring to life the stories of Irish, Italian and Jewish families. These compelling stories have shaped the America we know today.

This is the daytime school performance. Layer the Walls will also have a performance at 3:00 pm on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 open to the public.

 

 

 

This engagement of Layer the Walls is made possible through the ArtsCONNECT program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

“Like prehistoric sediment, the walls of a building often contain traces and impressions of lives once lived. Liz Parker and Rachel Sullivan created this Manhattan production, for children 7 and older, after a visit to the Tenement Museum on the Lower East Side, where they learned of the old apartments’ many layers of wallpaper, each applied by an immigrant family. Set within a tenement that is about to be torn down and whose interior is plastered with 40 layers, this show uses masks, toy-theater techniques and puppets designed by Spica Wobbe to imagine the proud and perilous histories of the building’s Italian, Jewish and Irish occupants.” Laurel Graeber, New York Times.
