Manteo Marionettes – a Documentary Film and Lecture Demo
October 13, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Tony De Nonno takes people of all ages on an enlightening journey into the life and legacy of puppeteers Mike and Aida Manteo, their children and grandchildren, a family bound together by a Sicilian folk tradition that spans a century in New York. Experience this enchanting vision of New York’s acclaimed Papa Manteo Sicilian Marionette Theater, first established on Catherine Street in Manhattan’s Little Italy in 1918, and featured in The Godfather. From the beginning to the end of his presentation, with Papa Miguel Manteo’s authentic Orlando Furioso metal marionettes in hand, De Nonno engages “children of all ages” in attendance to be active participants. A highlight will be the screening of his award-winning, nationally broadcast PBS Network documentary about the Manteo Family — It’s One Family: Knock on Wood.
