INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED BREAD & PUPPET THEATER TO ONCE AGAIN PERFORM at BIGTOWN GALLERY in ROCHESTER!
Bread and Puppet Theater returns to BigTown Gallery in Rochester, Friday September 7th with The 6000 Generation Circus, a celebration of 6000 generations of human revolution against human management, featuring giant dwarves and cardboard grasshoppers, and powered as always by the hot sounds of the Bread and Puppet Circus Band.
B&P director, Peter Schumann, says of The 6000 Generation Circus: “The circus started 6000 generations ago when a 2-legged mythological beast invented language & with it claimed humanity. The claim continues, but the humanity is in question. The organized crime which is called politics continues to devastate its own kind as well as the mountains & the valleys of the original luxury planet & as disparity grows the manufacture of the planet’s doom accelerates. The circus is one of the many human protests that must unify into one cry & revolution in order to draw the proper consequences from the 6000 generations.”
Bread and Puppet’s performance at BigTown Gallery kicks off the first weekend of a 14 week tour across the country and back with The 6000 Generation Circus and The Basic Byebye Show.
After the performance Bread and Puppet will serve its famous free 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. BigTown Gallery will also be firing up their oven and will have their pizza for sale.
