Coney Island USA, Sabroso Projects & Funny Face in partnership with IBEX Puppetry Present...

RAW PUPPETRY from the Decolonized Republic of Puerto Rico!

Poncili Creación's BENDING ENDINNING!

Poncili Creación are making a whirlwind tour of NYC. This duo of puppeteer brothers, Efrain & Pablo Del Hierro, spend much of their time touring galleries & venues throughout North America and Europe. Don't miss your chance to catch them LIVE & in-person!

In Bending Endinning... Poncili Ceación will humbly try by any means--with aggressive energy & unorthodox techniques--to remove from the human minds of the audience the belief that not everything is possible. Prepare yourself to be touched, challenged & surprised while they perform open-mind surgery on your preconditioned brain.
(Dur. 40 min)

Using large-scale transformative sculpture, raw magic & visceral energy, Poncili Ceación plunge us into a whimsical nightmare to contemplate the beauty of nothingness all around & within us. This is one ride that you won't escape unscathed.

This one-of-a-kind night of unconventional puppetry will also feature a cardboard invasion by Brooklyn's own BOXCUTTER COLLECTIVE! Core members Sam Wilson, Jason Hicks, Tom Cunningham & Joe Therrien are part of an extended family that includes Puppeteers, Painters, Performers, Builders, Educators, Workers, Union Organizers, & Mischief Makers. They make cultural work for the revolution from garbage & bad jokes. Their aim is to take down the rotten empire one cardboard puppet show at a time.

Join us at legendary Coney Island USA for a night of RAW PUPPET MAGIC AT ITS BEST!

All ticket sales are non-refundable and WILL CALL only to be picked up night of performance, at our box office at 1208 Surf Avenue. TICKETS WILL NOT SHIP. There are no extra service fees for online purchase.
