WonderSpark is proud to continue the tradition of non-moving-mouth hand puppets, aka “Mister Rogers style”. From theaters to libraries, NYC shops and school classrooms, WonderSpark’s flexibility allows them to perform in any space.
Every month since 2010, WonderSpark volunteers at the Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital in Manhattan, bringing laughter and joy to the patients, parents and staff.
La MaMa Kids
La MaMa Kids Online presents kids performances and hands-on workshops online, timed especially for “after school” viewing! La MaMa will continue to use emerging technologies to create a new venue for artistic expression that questions how art can function and how we as a society can survive challenging periods of history.
Presented by La MaMa and CultureHub, La MaMa is exploring ways to respond creatively to a situation that is potentially changing how we gather as a community in our theatres. La MaMa is working with CultureHub to provide online streaming of select productions and events on Howlround Theatre Commons.
