The world premiere of Award-winning puppeteer/performance & visual artist James Godwin’s THE FLATIRON HEX tells the story of Wylie Walker, a contract sorcerer who works for NYORG, a city in the middle of a swamp. Storms constantly threaten to destroy NYORG, and as an impending super storm approaches, it is up to Wylie to decipher a mysterious document & utilize the occult power of the Flatiron building to save the city. Godwin’s previous collaborations include Julie Taymor, David Bowie, the Muppets & even Aerosmith. A 2014 Jim Henson Award recipient, Godwin utilizes remarkable puppets, masks & mystical neo-noir visuals to tell a story set in a parallel, near-future NYC filled with ghosts, elemental spirits & evil demigods.
