2013 IS BREAD & PUPPET THEATER’S 50TH ANNIVERSARY !!
DESCRIPTIONS OF CURRENT TOURING PRODUCTIONS:
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.
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 1992 and is a puppet show which makes fun of puppet shows and Presidents. The Foot, the quintessential Bread and Puppet cantastoria which has been performed in many languages and countries throughout the world. A Man Says Goodbye to His Mother,originally created & performed during the Vietnam War Era and, sadly, still pertinent.
