Royalty Rumpus (2019)
An annual event to celebrate our top-tier supporting members, the Shadow Royalty. There is food, cocktails and activities at this summertime gathering. Every year we choose an overlooked location within the public realm of the city, and fix it up a bit. There is a competition of sorts, and the winner is given a custom-made mask and crowned the Shadow Poobah.
This year we brought a few canoes out to Plank Bridge Park on the Newtown Creek. We were delighted to partner with StoLen, who performed a water ritual and experimental noise performance. Isabel Kagan emerged triumphant as 2019’s Shadow Poobah following a found sculpture competition.
