Little Amal & The Sounds of Harlem
September 26 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
National Black Theatre is excited to welcome Little Amal to New York City!
Traveling far and wide, the 12-foot puppet will explore The Sounds of Harlem welcomed by the drumming students of the Harlem School of the Arts and The Kotchegna Dance Company at the State Office Building Plaza on 125th Street, where the historic bronze sculpture of Adam Clayton Powell Jr. walks to higher ground. Drawn to the wonderment and joyful vibration, Amal will be led through the streets of Harlem down 126th Street from The State Office Building to the entrance of Marcus Garvey Park.
Join our celebration of welcome as we engage in a second line processional, allowing her to feel the unforgettable pulse of this vibrant community of Harlem!
Walk with Amal is a co-production between The Walk Productions and St. Ann’s Warehouse in association with Handspring Puppet Company. Between September 14 – October 2, Amal will be welcomed at 55 events across the five boroughs of New York City. This dynamic cultural exchange is free to the public.
