The Battle For Mau Mau Island 2019

On Saturday, The Battle For Mau Mau Island (Multi-Oceanic Association of Unified Micro-Nations and Autonomous Utopias) went down in Jamaica Bay, Brooklyn. At the annual event, flotillas of costumed gladiator artists vie against each other in epic, floating battles. This year’s theme was COMPLEXITY and teams like Hades Water Taxi, The Sea Monkeys and Styx interpreted that in their best and wackiest ways, creating sophisticated and seaworthy visions of chaos.
