BLOOD RED ROSES: THE FEMALE PIRATE PROJECT

Genre: Drama
Created by the ensemble, directed by Gretchen Van Lente

Blood Red Roses is a devised immersive shadow puppetry piece that examines the history of female pirates – performed on a boat in the Red Hook Channel. What made these incredible and dangerous women choose this life, as opposed to a more conventional path? The shadows will be cast all around you, constantly surprising you. Come go to sea with us, drink rum with us, sing along with us, go on this journey with us…

The show runs approximately 55 minutes, with no intermission.  

The Waterfront Museum is housed on board the Lehigh Valley No. 79, an authentic floating artifact that was built in 1914 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the last wooden barge of the “lighterage era” (1860-1960), which remains afloat. From the barge and pier, visitors are treated to a rare front view of the Statue of Liberty, and to the tugs, freighters, and container and cruise ships that crisscross the harbor daily.
