Sunday, June 2nd , 2-5 p.m. Bread and Puppet Museum Celebrates Opening of 44th Season
The Bread & Puppet Museum celebrates the beginning of its forty-fourth season with a Museum Open House. Visitors will be treated to live music, large and small puppetshows and sourdough rye bread with aioli. After guest performers Bread and Puppet will present Diagonal Life: Theory and Praxis, a show that investigates “the leaning power of hurt verticals”.
Bread and Puppet’s Diagonal Life presents the diagonal as a potent and promising opposition to the dominating verticality of our culture. Puppeteers long ago realized that the most aesthetically radical movements for puppets are diagonals, because these movements cannot be sustained by human actors or dancers for more than a moment. Diagonal Life brings all the bewildering, beguiling, and downright funny possibilities and implications of diagonality to life with song, dance, magic, mechanism, and stunning cardboard and paper maché puppets painted in Peter Schumann’s exuberant, slapdash expressionist style.
The Bread and Puppet Museum is located at the Bread and Puppet Farm on 753 Heights Rd./Rt. 122 in Glover, Vermont.
