Greg Corbino is a trans-disciplinary artist, puppeteer and educator whose work investigates how object performance crafted from plastic detritus and engaged by community can create queer ecologies of care and action in public space. His work is deeply invested in nature and aspires to be an act of repair, creating puppets from materials collected from New York shorelines to draw attention to the calamitous environmental impact of the plastics industry. Gregory is a long-time collaborator with Peter Schumann and The Bread and Puppet Theater and has worked with Jennifer Miller and Circus Amok, Reverend Billy, Savitri D and The Stop Shopping Choir, Xaviera Simmons, Sanford Biggers, Cecilia Vicuña, Amy Trompeter and Cathy Weis among others. His fabrication and design work has been seen at The High Line, The Queens Museum, The Leslie Lohman Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the Smithsonian Institution.
THE NEW YORKER
"Snatch and Tainty’s wonderful fake television show doesn’t air, exactly, so much as gestate inside a gorgeously baroque, pink-and-gilt set, designed by Greg Corbino, which features a chapel-size model of a lower body, with a throbbing, door-like vagina dead center, bracketed by huge golden legs."
"Working with director Jess Barbagallo and production designer Greg Corbino, Blackwell has envisioned a stage world as dense and meticulous in its detail as it is hilarious. … Everything’s dreamed up and executed in what feels like a state of giddy, ingenious pleasure."
