The circus is coming! The circus is coming! Bread & Puppet Theater makes a rare cross-country tour this fall 2022. With performances coast to coast, from New York to Seattle, Los Angeles to New Orleans, the iconic political puppet theater company brings Our Domestic Resurrection Circus: Apocalypse Defiance to over 50 cities and towns. Fifty-two years ago Bread & Puppet Theater performed Our Domestic Resurrection Circus for the first time at Goddard College in Plainfield, VT. Since then, this capacious and provocative title has served as the basis of annual spectacles that generations of audiences have come to rely on for satire and celebration in the face of intolerable circumstances. This year, B&P will take up the tradition again, albeit with a timely subtitle: The Apocalypse Defiance Circus.
The show, says Schumann, is “in response to our totally unresurrected capitalist situation, not only the hundreds of thousands of unnecessarily sacrificed pandemic victims but our culture’s unwillingness to recognize Mother Earth’s revolt against our civilization. Since we earthlings do not live up to our earthling obligations, we need resurrection circuses to yell against our own stupidity.”
After the show Bread & Puppet will serve its famous sourdough rye bread with aioli, and Bread & Puppet’s “Cheap Art” – books, posters, postcards, pamphlets and banners from the Bread & Puppet Press – will be for sale.
When: Tuesday, November 15th at 7:30pm
Where: Wise Fool Studio (1131 Siler Rd. B)
