Bread & Puppet returns to NYC with two brand new shows!
The Domestic Insurrection Circus stars the Washer Women as its triumphant superheroes, working together to take down the 20 foot cardboard billionaires that stand in for big business, crooked politicians and the broken capitalist system. Also including a generous dusting of flagging, stilt walking, paper-mache animals, dad slapstick antics and a giant brass band. You are sure to leave the theater more confused and much happier then when you came in.
The Honey Let's Go Home Opera is a comprehensive treatise on cardboard. "The nature of cardboard is refuse", sings a chorus member, "meaning the discard of the economic empire's excesses. By declaring reality to be cardboard you open the gates to unheard of growth and prosperity." In a humorous and colorful unfolding of events, the chorus manipulates cafeteria trays, musical instruments, puppet forks and cardboard tools in an attempt to find "the yearned for thing that normal reality can't achieve". With music from Alan Berg's Op. 1 piano sonata and Mozart's Don Giovanni, among others, probably you shouldn't miss this one.
