Bread & Puppet bringing its show to Rochester

ROCHESTER — Bread and Puppet Theater returns to BigTown Gallery in Rochester on Friday, Sept. 7, with The 6,000 Generation Circus, a celebration of 6,000 generations of human revolution against human management. The show will feature giant dwarves and cardboard grasshoppers and be powered, as always, by the hot sounds of the Bread and Puppet Circus Band.
Circus Director Peter Schumann is excited about this year’s show.
“The circus started 6,000 generations ago when a two-legged mythological beast invented language and with it claimed humanity,” Schumann said. “The claim continues, but the humanity is in question. The organized crime that is called politics continues to devastate its own kind as well as the mountains and the valleys of the original luxury planet; and 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 and revolution in order to draw the proper consequences from the 6,000 generations,” he concluded
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 6,000 Generation Circus and The Basic Byebye Show.
Before the performance BigTown will have their delicious wood-fired pizza for sale. 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.
Tickets are $10, children age 5 and younger are free. To RSVP call 802-767-9670 or e-mail at [email protected].
