Puppets at the Border Performance

Flor is fifteen foot tall; she is from Sonora. Toby is fifteen foot tall; he is from Arizona. Flor and Toby will be at the festival looking for more friends who are just like them. If you see them, approach them: maybe you can help them. Toby, Flor, and the rest of their giant friends will go whatever distance is necessary and transcend all kinds of boundaries to unite. Let them guide you and see if it is possible to overcome our frontiers and let our humanity take us Beyond The Wall.                                             (photo credit: Craig Lowy)
