For more information on the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre, our COVID-19 policy and to purchase tickets, visit our website.

Wake Up, Daisy! tells the story of Daisy, a lively little girl living in the heart of New York City in an apartment overlooking Central Park. At Daisy’s much-anticipated birthday party, she encounters three special guests, known as her “Squad-parents”, from Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx who grant her the gifts of courage, knowledge, and a second chance. When an unwelcome guest shows up and casts a curse on her, Daisy’s life is forever changed. But through the support of her friends and an adventure throughout the city, Daisy’s strong self-determination and vivid imagination may be all she needs to break the curse.

Before Central Park was built, the area from West 82nd to West 89th Street was home to Seneca Village, the largest community of African-American property owners in New York.

Discover Seneca Village, the largest community of free African-American property owners in pre–Civil War New York. On this tour, visitors will read the physical landscape of Seneca Village to understand the particular value it provided to Black New Yorkers seeking refuge from the crowded conditions and racial discrimination prevalent in early 19th Century NYC. Conservancy guides offer insight into this unique community and the events that resulted in the displacement of Seneca Village residents through the process of eminent domain for the construction of a new park.

Recommended for those interested in Black history, social history, NYC history, and/or archaeology.

COVID-19 HEALTH + SAFETY POLICIES

Ensuring the health and safety of our guests, staff, and the public is our top priority. Central Park Conservancy programs follow recommended guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, New York State, and New York City.

In celebration of Black History Month, "The NYC Parks Renaming Project: Celebrating Black Leaders" highlights some of the parks and park features that the agency has recently renamed to honor the Black experience in New York City.

In June 2020, the agency pledged to demonstrate how it stands in solidarity with the Black community in its fight to combat systemic racism. Since then, Parks has named 28 parks spaces to acknowledge the legacies of Black Americans, encourage discourse about their contributions, and work to make the park system more diverse and reflective of the people it serves. The exhibition includes historical and contemporary photographs accompanied by texts detailing the park histories and biographies of the honored individuals.

The Arsenal Gallery is located at 64th Street and Fifth Avenue inside Central Park, Third Floor of the Arsenal Building. Gallery hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. (Closed Thursday, March 3 and Friday, March 4.) Admission is free. For further information please call (212) 360-8114.

By Ora Kemp, MPH, Director of Nutrition, NY Common Pantry.

Sowed from seeds of fertile grounds, sweat-drenched brows, and broken backs, the flavors of the American plate are seasoned with enslavement's bitterness. Salted with segregation and smoked in stacks of racial injustice, the hunger pangs that linger in the gut of Black and Brown folks has fully grown into an insatiable desire for change. The future of food equity will not be one carved by the unsavory nature of our past but inspired by the diversity of our people and the places and spaces that shape and nurture us. Join us as we explore the American plate and the flavors that define the future of food equity.

Join the NYC Parks Stewardship team and staff at the Greenbelt Native Plant Center to process beachgrass (Ammophila breviligulata) for the upcoming spring season!

Ammophila is the dominant coastal grass in our region, helping to build and stabilize front dunes. Because the grass primarily spreads by rhizome, we harvest bare-root plant material from GNPC production plots to replant into dune restoration projects. Before planting, the stems must be cleaned and packaged. This process involves hand-stripping outer brown layers and excess roots, ensuring the viability of the green material and facilitating its replanting.

Volunteers should dress in clothes that can get dirty, close-toed shoes, and warm layers. Facemasks are required! Please note this event will occur inside of a greenhouse with room for social distancing, or outside if weather allows.

Wake Up, Daisy! tells the story of Daisy, a lively little girl living in the heart of New York City in an apartment overlooking Central Park. At Daisy’s much-anticipated birthday party, she encounters three special guests, known as her “Squad-parents”, from Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx who grant her the gifts of courage, knowledge, and a second chance. When an unwelcome guest shows up and casts a curse on her, Daisy’s life is forever changed. But through the support of her friends and an adventure throughout the city, Daisy’s strong self-determination and vivid imagination may be all she needs to break the curse.

Join the NYC Parks Stewardship team and staff at John Dewey High School to process beachgrass (Ammophila breviligulata) for the upcoming spring season!

Ammophila is the dominant coastal grass in our region, helping to build and stabilize front dunes. Because the grass primarily spreads by rhizome, we harvest bare-root plant material from the Greenbelt Native Plant Center's production plots to replant into dune restoration projects. Before planting, the stems must be cleaned and packaged. This process involves hand-stripping outer brown layers and excess roots, ensuring the viability of the green material and facilitating its replanting.

Join us for our first #VirtualPASS event of the year. This presentation will highlight the process of choreographer Kiera Bono’s 2021 PASS residency, including excerpts of recorded footage by Bono and collaborators.

Registration required

Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF) is an ongoing archival process that oscillates between aestheticizing and de-aestheticizing daily maintenance movements. Tuning into mobility impairment, chronic illness, and physical therapy as choreographic resources, this practice began as an attempted collaboration between a stainless-steel plate, seven screws, and a distal radius from the time of their surgical fixation in April 2019 and has continued beyond the surgical removal of hardware in July 2020.

With attention to the materiality and temporality of disability, ORIF offers porous bones, rubber TheraBand resistance bars, accordion bellows, and strands of homemade pasta as dance partners in scores that stew in the blurriness between internal and external.

Conceived and choreographed by Kiera Bono. Collaborators: Laura Farrell, Alexander Enzo Hope, Simone Johnson, Yo-Yo Lin, Julia Lucrecia Taveras, and Ella Dawn W-S. Live captioning by Cory Dostie and ASL interpretation by SignNexus.

Kiera Bono is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Theatre and Performance program at The Graduate Center, CUNY; a Graduate Teaching Fellow at The City College of New York; and an interdisciplinary artist. Approaching biopolitical questions surrounding disability, queerness, food, and diaspora, their research explores performances of assimilation and resistance. Through multisensorial scores and choreographies of care, Bono maintains embodied and digital archives of labor, trauma, and relationality. Their performance practice has been supported by the Catwalk Art Residency (2017, 2018), the Old Furnace Artist Residency (2018), The Whole Shebang Open Space Residency (2019), and the Dance/NYC Disability. Dance. Artistry. Dance and Social Justice Fellowship Program (2020, 2021). They have had the pleasure of performing in the work of Zoey Hart, Ella Dawn W-S/Dancews, and Melissa West, as well as collaborating with Melisande Echanique, Laura Farrell, Alexander Enzo Hope, Simone Johnson, and Londs Reuter, among others.

PASS: Performing Arts Salon Saturdays residency program is made possible through generous lead support from the Howard Gilman Foundation, with additional support from the Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Snug Harbor is a proud partner with the CUNY Dance Initiative.
