    Bread & Puppet Theater: "The Circus of the Possibilitarians"

    Presented by and Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) at BCA Cyclorama

    January 26 - January 27, 2013


    Bread & Puppet Theater:

    Commencing its 50th anniversary of presenting in-earnest socio-political puppetry, the long-standing award-winning Vermont-based Bread & Puppet Theater, featuring Artistic Director Peter Schumann and his troupe of puppeteers, returns for its 6th annual visit to the Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts. This year, the one week residency includes weekend matinee performances of The Circus of the Possibilitarians (for children of all ages).

    The Circus of the Possibilitarians is a satirical horse and butterfly circus, addressing pertinent national and international issues in a clownish fashion, including rotten ideas, a wild dancing horse and some mellow lions, a solemn salute to the world's casualties and much more! The Dire Circumstance Jubilation Ensemble provides a little bit of brass and plenty of noise. Please take note that even if some of the circus acts are politically puzzling to adults, accompanying kids can usually explain them. After each performance, the audience is welcome to examine all the masks and puppets and to peruse the Cheap Art for sale.
