Bread and Puppet Theater: Dirt Cheap Money Circus
January 30 - January 31, 2010
The award-winning Bread and Puppet Theater, featuring Artistic Director Peter Schumann and his troupe of Vermont puppeteers, returns for a fourth year to the BCA’s Cyclorama bringing their signature powerful imagery, masked characters, and giant papier-mâché puppets. The "Dirt Cheap Money Circus” is a family-friendly production, all with live circus band accompaniment. Performed by Peter Schumann and the Bread & Puppet Company, along with a large number of local volunteer puppeteers and musicians. Take note that some of the circus acts are politically puzzling to adults, but accompanying kids can usually explain them. The audience is welcome to examine all the masks and puppets after the show. Cheap art will be for sale after each performance. For detailed information regarding the week’s events, call the Boston Center for the Arts at 617-426-5000 or log onto www.bcaonline.org.
