Play with us at the ICA/Boston, July 2-September 6!
How to play with us at The Watershed and explore Firelei Báez's monumental commission:
1. Pick up an ICA Kids Art Kit at The Watershed's information desk and use our Story Scope to create your own stories.

Our Story Scope is part of the ICA Kids tote bags designed by local illustrator Alice Caldwell with art kits designed by Watershed artists Firelei Báez and Stephen Hamilton.

Play for Change is a 2021 Live Arts Boston grant recipient!
In collaboration with Little Uprisings (led by Tanya Nixon-Silberg), The Gottabees will develop an immersive theatrical experience for families featuring puppetry, live music and art-making to talk about power, joy and liberation. Play for Change will premiere Summer 2022.
This project has grown out of Bonnie and Tanya's shared love of building community through art and action; our deep respect and trust of children's perspectives and voices; and our friendship as mothers, artists, and educators.
We can't wait to share our project with communities!
The Gottabees are a Boston-based ensemble dedicated to creating inspirational, engaging, and empowering theater for family audiences. Our company is known internationally for uniting simple-but-elegant visual theater with astonishing technique.
