Bread + Puppet brings their Domestic Resurrection Circus to the Snow Bowl

Our Domestic Resurrection Circus is a spectacle of protest and celebration that addresses the urgent themes of the moment using paper maché, dance, and a live brass band. 

Circus is perhaps the most iconic of the many performance genres for which Bread & Puppet is known. A Bread & Puppet Circus is a large-scale political puppet spectacle which borrows from traditional Circus tropes and is performed in-the-round. Made up of a bright, raucous melee of short acts using diverse puppetry styles, it spans many moods, from slapstick to the sublime.

“This year’s circus’ central theme is Homosapiens reform”, says director Peter Schumann. “Insidious Homosapiens, representative of the Accumulated Evil of the Whole, will be arrested, taken to court, & condemned to a rehabilitation facility where he has to take classes in totally new behavior: how to be an earthling instead of an engineer of the humanity machine, how to cry like a bird & speak like a thunderstorm & then graduate with a Dr. degree to cure the species from its life threatening diseases like war, capitalism, fossil fuel addiction, weapons obsession, etc.”


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. All ticket proceeds benefit Bread and Puppet Theater and Town Hall Theater. Tickets are required and available for purchase at townhalltheater.org.
No one will be turned away for lack of funds.  If you need assistance with the price of the ticket please contact tickets@townhalltheater.org
