50 Years of Bread & Puppet is a series of four short shows that span the fifty years that Bread & Puppet Theater has been in existence. Dead Man Rises was first performed at Columbia University during the student occupation in 1968. President and Chair was created in 1982 and is a ridiculous puppet show which makes fun of puppet shows and election campaigns. History of Humanity, @ 2000, a short and lively show that has been performed many times over the years in many places all over the world. A Man Says Goodbye to His Mother, originally created & performed during the Vietnam War Era and, sadly, still pertinent.
The Circus of the Possibilitarians is a satirical horse and butterfly circus, addressing pertinent national and international issues in a clownish fashion, including rotten ideas, a wild dancing horse and some mellow lions, a solemn salute to the world’s casualties and much more! The Dire Circumstance Jubilation Ensemble provides a little bit of brass and a lot of noise. Please take note that if some of the circus acts are politically puzzling to adults, accompanying children can usually explain them.Photo by Mark Dannenhauer
