New Bread and Puppet Production “Underneath the Above Show No. 1 (Inspired by the Forthcoming Presidential Election Campaign in the Greatest Country in the World)”
Bread and Puppet returns to the Old Labor Hall with a new production. Bread and Puppet Theater is one of the oldest, nonprofit, self-supporting theatrical companies in the country. This one of its touring performances—suitable for the whole family, but may be difficult for younger children.
Underneath the Above Show No. 1 is a puppet show contribution to the ongoing U.S. presidential election campaign, performed by a team of hardhats who manipulate the life-size cardboard electorate. The elementary dissatisfaction of the population and its desire for systemic change are demonstrated in three acts showing 3 regime changes in a distant mountainous country and are in stark contrast to the actuality of the ongoing presidential campaign.
The show may contain one or all of these elements (or something else altogether:
1) 5 or 6 generic truth-relationship dances
2) A public-opinion-manufacture event
3) A collateral damage dance with naked papier-mâché population
4) A traditional broom dance
5) Sermon to the cockroaches with live music
