Guests of Honor
Poncili Creación is an art collective, composed of identical twin brothers Pablo and Efrain Del Hierro from Santurce, Puerto Rico. Known for their creative and improvisational approach to puppetry, the brothers use their works as a form of protest and a call to action.
David Picket, CEO of Gotham Org, has served for many years on the Brooklyn Academy of Music Board of Trustees and is actively involved with the Cornell English Department Creative Writing Program. Flux Factory will soon partner with Gotham Org to launch its new venue, Flux IV, at Gotham Point on the Hunters Point South waterfront.
