Introduction to Arm-of-the-Sea Theater


For over twenty years Arm-of-the-Sea has been developing a style of magical realism that marries the mythic and the everyday, humanity and the earth, visual arts and natural science, poetry and politics.

Our large-scale productions incorporate ancient theatrical devices for shared enchantment and visual storytelling. With music, gesture and stunning visuals, they illuminate the links between human communities and the life-support processes of this living planet.

Arm-of-the-Sea Theater is a not-for-profit organization based in Saugerties, NY, in the beautiful Hudson River Valley. Our five-member performance company tours shows to cultural centers, festivals and schools throughout the eastern half of the country. Performance fees provide the majority of our operating budget, with additional support from the NY State Council on the Arts, The Jim Henson Foundation, The Puffin Foundation, The Hudson River Foundation, the Catskill Watershed Corp., the NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation, and individual donors.
