Bread & Puppet's Circus


A giant washerwoman puppet and actors perform Bread & Puppet Theater's 2022 "Our Domestic Resurrection Circus: Apocalypse Defiance" at their Glover, Vermont, farm.

Vermont's Bread & Puppet Theater makes its annual visit to Cambridge to perform "Our Domestic Resurrection Circus: Apocalypse Defiance" on the Common on Sunday, Sept. 4, at 4 p.m. Free. The show offers slapstick comedy, singing, a live band, satire, and the theater's iconic giant puppets. The show is part of Cambridge Arts' 2022 Ripple Festival, a series of smaller in-person performances and arts markets rippling out into Cambridge neighborhoods in the spirit of the River Festival.

Co-founder Peter Schumann says this circus is “in response to our totally unresurrected capitalist situation, not only the hundreds of thousands of unnecessarily sacrificed pandemic victims but our culture’s unwillingness to recognize Mother Earth’s revolt against our civilization. Since we earthlings do not live up to our earthling obligations, we need resurrection circuses to yell against our own stupidity.”

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.
