past performances


Most of the members of WHAT IS IT LIKE TO BE A BAT? used to live on the island of Manhattan in small caves towards the southern end---except for Danny who flew afield in Williamsburg (across the river).

Lately, only Kitty and Paul sleep on the small island, Kitty southward near Tompkins Square Park, Paul further north in Harlem. Both migrate regularly to the distant north: Paul to the Catskills and Kitty to Vermont. Meanwhile, Dafna has found a new cave in Queens but flies back and forth from the longer island to the smaller every night.
