Follow Calpurnia as she and other wildlife not normally seen in New York, but that have recently been sighted here, encounter urban spaces and urban animals.

A long-time resident La MaMa artist, Jane Catherine Shaw interweaves imaginative characters and stories to make one exciting piece of theatre for young audiences. Selected works include original pieces: Thirst: Memory of Water, The Lone Runner, Bed of Light, Universe Expanding, Folktales of Asia and Africa, and Follow the Wind: Tales From The New World. She is the curator of La MaMa Puppet Slam.
