Bread and Puppet Theater is an internationally celebrated company with a legacy in puppet pageantry and spectacle in America for the past fifty one years. Their spectacle puppetry style with 10 foot puppets became a mainstay of U.S. political protests. The company’s newest production, The Apocalypse Defiance Circus, attempts to address the heart of the current moment with a bright barrage of acts spanning many moods, from slapstick to the sublime, all powered by a riotous brass band. Help is provided by stilt-dancers, blue horses, paper maché clouds and tigers. 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 and Puppet Press - will be for sale.


This community performance is presented with support from Factory Obscura, SPARK! Creative Lab, Church of the Open Arms, and a bunch of artists who know that art saves lives.
