Bread and Puppet Theatre: Our Domestic Resurrection Circus
Legendary Independent Political Theater group, Bread & Puppet Theater, will come to Appalachian State with a brand new performance in the tradition of the iconic Bread & Puppet Circuses that began at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont in 1970. Traditional circus tropes are recast, with the help of Bread and Puppet's distinctive folk iconography, to draw attention to the urgent issues of the day. Stilt dancers, paper maché beasts of all sizes and Bread & Puppet's Fight-Against-The-End-Of-The-World Brass Band contribute their riotous inspiration to this colorful spectacle of protest and celebration.
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.
