The circus is coming! The circus is coming! Bread & Puppet Theater makes a rare cross-country tour with a performance of The Apocalypse Defiance Circus in Urbana on Wednesday, September 28th at 6:30pm at Crystal Lake Park’s Cannonball Hill. Bread and Puppet Theater is an internationally celebrated company that champions a visually rich, street-theater brand of performance art filled with music, dance and slapstick. Believing that theater is a basic necessity like bread, the company frequently brings its work to the streets for those who may not otherwise go to the theater. Its shows are political and spectacular, with puppets, stilt-walkers, masks with expressive faces, singing, dancing and playing music.
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.
Hosted by School for Designing a Society. Co-Sponsored by the Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center, Cunningham Township Supervisor’s Office, and Unit One at Allen Hall. This event is supported in part by a grant from the Urbana Arts & Culture Program.
