TRP Heads to Sea for Figment Festival on Governor's Island

Join over 300 artworks, performances, and projects will be brought to Governors Island… and we expect well over 10,000 New Yorkers to join us to engage in FIGMENT. We invite participants to bring art, costumes, toys, games, and other activities… but all you really need is your willingness to participate (and maybe a picnic lunch and water!).


You can take full advantage of FIGMENT by just wandering around, or you can view a schedule and map in advance on our website at Catch the ferry every hour on the hour at 10 South Street in Manhattan.

TRP's own Kat Georges & Peter Carlaftes will perform their charming and wild "Greenagers in Love" musical act on the Performance Stage (PD54) each day of the festival at 3:45 p.m. See you there!

If you're out of the area, deathly ill, or just can't make it for some strange reason, please check out our recent performances on YouTube at
