City Parks Foundation offers a traveling puppet show, CityParks PuppetMobile, the oldest continually operating company of its kind in the country, which presents free performances and puppet-making workshops in neighborhood parks, recreation centers and schools throughout New York City.

The CityParks PuppetMobile presents the classic Puss in Boots tale, with a twist. Once upon a time there lived a young man named Ferguson Mundingle. Fergus has just the bare essentials in life – a roof over his head, the clothes on his back, and his ever faithful pet cat. One day when lamenting his poor lifestyle, Fergus is astounded when his cat stands up, begins talking and introduces himself as Puss. Puss reveals to Fergus that he is very intelligent and well traveled, and even has an idea to help Fergus improve his situation. With that in mind, Puss dons a snazzy pair of boots and sets off on an exciting magical journey. Despite his reputation as a sly trickster, Puss soon proves himself a caring friend to all, willing to help at any cost!

This season, the Public Theater's Mobile Unit presents a new, world-class production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet to audiences and community venues across New York City. Olivier Award winner Chukwudi Iwuji (The Histories, King Lear at The Public) plays the anguished prince of Denmark who is confronted at every turn with a poisonous power structure that's robbed him of his father, and forever darkened his understanding of the world. Inspired by The Mobile Unit’s unique approach to engaging diverse communities with the arts, Patricia McGregor (Hurt Village, brownsville song (b-side for tray) at Lincoln Center) directs this bold take on Shakespeare's immortal tale about family, deceit and the explosive consequences of unchecked corruption.

<![CDATA[Shadow Performance by Cave Dogs: Sure-Minded Uncertainties]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/09/17/shadow-performance-by-cave-dogs http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/09/17/shadow-performance-by-cave-dogs Date: September 17, 2016

On the occasion of their collaboration with Juanli Carrion's public artwork OSS#02, the shadow performance group Cave Dogs will perform "Sure-Minded Uncertainties", which explores how immigration and the interplay of materialism, spiritualism, technology, and stewardship of the earth shapes our modern world.

A range of fantastical characters acting as modern day archetypes navigate a series of transformations through five short stories interweaving their fundamentally similar, but often out of place worlds. The work, when viewed in its entirety, forms a collective narrative that addresses mankind’s complicated relationship to each other, nature, and its resources. "Sure-Minded Uncertainties" uses innovative, visual effects and an original soundtrack to create a rich experience that documents and preserves important cultural voices and stories.

Cave Dogs brings together visual artists, puppeteers, musicians, dancers, storytellers, and writers in the spirit of interdisciplinary collaboration. Their medium evolves out of two ancient traditions: shadow puppet theatre and storytelling—and several contemporary art forms including film, video, sound, computer-generated animation, and performance art to create multiple, richly-layered visual tableaus, and produce effects that conjure both the dreamlike quality of early experimental film and the humor of contemporary animation.

We invite the audience to both de-construct these shadowy illusions while they are caught up in the intriguing layers of effects.
