HOOK, LINE & SINKER: Fishing the Hudson River

HOOK, LINE & SINKER: Fishing the Hudson River harnesses the power of mask and puppet theater to peer beneath the surface and explore the Hudson’s dual identity as prolific natural ecosystem, and PCB-contaminated Superfund site. The visually-charged show features live music and a bevy of low-tech special effects that reveal the river’s complex inner life. Pitched to oldsters and youngsters alike, HOOK, LINE & SINKER celebrates the timeless art of fishing while offering the low-down on eating fish from the Hudson. You can view a short video trailer from the show here.

HOOK, LINE & SINKER premiered in May 2015 and was given 39 performances during Arm-of-the-Sea’s 2014 & 2015 seasons. Performers included Laura Kopczak, Anna Haffner, Steve Smith, Keenan Cleary, Patrick Wadden, and musicians Dean Jones and Eli Winograd.

Production and presentation of this show made possible by support from the New York State Dept. of Health, and the Hudson River Improvement Fund. And by public funds from the New York Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
