Bread and Puppet Theater Presents: The Essential Furthermore

November 10 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Bread and Puppet: Essential Furthermore

The Essential Furthermore draws on the German peasant rebellions of the 14 and 15 hundreds to address the need for insurrection against the status quo of planetary ecological collapse, and hostility to the refugees created by natural and human-made disasters. The show demonstrates the power of mass political and social movements with massive dances in Bread and Puppet’s pedestrian expressionist “Lubberland” style, building momentum as the piece grows into a polyvocal fugue on several crucial themes of the moment: totalitarianism, extinction, and “the normalization of the unthinkable.”
