“… a tender, fantastical symphony of the imagination …” – The New York Times

Frank is an office worker living in New York in the early 1980s who is obsessed with cleanliness and order. Plagued by pigeons in the park, Frank starts to believe they are plotting against him.

A darkly comedic yet heartfelt adventure, The Pigeoning spins puppetry, music, video, and lo-fi special effects into an epic tale about the illusion of safety and control in the context of unexpected events. The Pigeoning takes a look at the divide between man and nature at a time when listening to the animals may be our best bet. Recent Guggenheim award-winning artist and director Robin Frohardt brings her rich aesthetic, highlydetailed constructions, and convention-breaking storytelling to this bunraku-style puppetry show performed by five puppeteers.
