At the New York Aquarium, Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY from June 1-25, 2020
LONE SHARK is a new site-specific music theater piece set in the exhibit halls and surroundings of the New York Aquarium’s spectacular “Ocean Wonders: Sharks” building. It tells the interconnected stories of people who live at the edge of a hidden world.
LONE SHARK is charged with music, dance, puppetry, and the setting of the Aquarium itself: the beach, the Coney Island boardwalk, the Cyclone, the sea, and the creatures who inhabit it -sharks, rays, and myriad fish who, gliding by, observe the performers and audience and provide their own gorgeous and unpredictable choreography.
