Bread and Puppet Theater comes to The Old Stone House with a brand new performance in the tradition of the Circuses that began at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont in 1970.
Traditional circus tropes are reinterpreted with the help of Bread and Puppet’s distinctive folk iconography to draw attention to the urgent issues of the day. Stilt dancers, paper maché beasts of all sizes, and a Bread and Puppet’s Fight-Against-The-End-Of-The-World Brass Band contribute their riotous inspiration to this colorful spectacle of protest and celebration.
After the show Bread and Puppet will serve its famous sourdough rye bread with aioli, and Bread and Puppet’s “Cheap Art” – books, posters, postcards, pamphlets and banners from the Bread & Puppet Press – will be for sale.
Show Length: Approximately 1 hour.
Tickets on sale soon at BreadandPuppet.org.
No one turned away for lack of funds
