BREAD AND PUPPET THEATER Thursday February 17

February 10, 2011

One of the country’s most prominent political theater groups, Bread and Puppet has existed since the days of the Vietnam War, when performers took to the streets of New York City portraying the figures, situations, and ideas of the time using inexpensive props and puppets.

Today, the group is at the edge of “cheap art” movement, continuing to engage the complex injustices of our time with art made from the everyday. The group’s center is a 74-year-old farm in Glover, Vermont, where artists collaborate to create radical public performances that meld the poetic with the political, the mundane with the spritual.

They’ll be performing in Charlottesville on Thursday, Feb. 17, at Random Row.
