Bread and Puppet Show 8pm-9pm

*The Grasshopper Rebellion Circus, *a large-scale puppet spectacle that
explains and teaches riot and rebellion against intolerable situations with
the help of state of the art paper-maché weaponry and the appropriate
riotous Bread and Puppet Brass Band.

B&P director, Peter Schumann, says of *The Grasshopper Rebellion Circus*:
“Tigers roar, apes drum their chests, horses neigh, and celestial
grasshoppers teach ICE agents the basics steps of grasshopper rebellion
dancing. A paradise investigation team analyses the earthlings’
relationship to paradise, while major representatives of Mother Earth
attend a festive puerto rican dance of liberation from natural and
political disaster.”

Bread and Puppet comes to Missoula as part of a 14 week tour across the
country and back with *The Grasshopper Rebellion Circus* and *The Basic
Byebye Show.*

After the performance Bread and Puppet will serve its famous free sourdough
rye bread with aioli, and Bread and Puppet’s “Cheap Art” – books, posters,
postcards, pamphlets and banners from the Bread and Puppet Press – will be
for sale.

Bread & Puppet Theater is an internationally celebrated company that
champions a visually rich, street-theater brand of performance art filled
with music, dance and slapstick. Its shows are political and spectacular,
with huge puppets made of paper maché and cardboard. Founded in 1963 by
Peter Schumann on New York City's Lower East Side, the theater has been
based in the North East Kingdom of Vermont since the early 1970s.
