Featuring an experimental improvised piece, mechanical sound sculptures and a massive kinetic sculpture titled Container Man, Bread and Puppet Theater's work is both politically stimulating and awe inspiring. The performance will take place at The Quarry, a former industrial site set on a 12-acre campus in the forest outside of Acton. The avant-garde performance-art piece features Bread & Puppet's signature visual elements, along with movement, vocals and pertinent political social commentary. Sourdough rye will be served and cheap art will be available for purchase after the show. Led by artist Peter Schumann, Bread and Puppet first made its mark in the experimental theater movement of the '60s and '70s in New York and is now thriving in its home in Vermont, independently pursuing its twin goals of art and activism. All sound sculptures were designed by Viktor Lois, the Hungarian-born artistic director of Contemporary Arts International. Learn More
