Bread and Puppet Theater is visiting Buffalo tonight, and those lucky enough to catch the theater company's Giant Puppet Circus (Circus of the Possibilitarians) are sure to be delighted with the magical one-night special performance. To top it off, the show is being held at The Foundry, located at 298 Northampton Street in Buffalo. The Foundry has become an inspirational community gathering place, where people come to celebrate everything from artistic performances to artisan collaboration. The Foundry "provides affordable work spaces for artisans and a creative learning environment for do'ers, innovators, and action seekers."
Buffalo is extremely fortunate to have Bread and Puppet making a stop-over while on tour. Linda Elbow, Tour Manager, stated, "Buffalo is a city we have been hoping to visit for some time, we are eager to perform, and immerse the community in our work." The theater company got its start back in the 60s in order to create a political voice to end the Vietnam War. Since that time Bread and Puppet has become a mainstay in the world of puppeteering, traveling the globe in order to spread the company's message through "political music, art, puppetry, and pageantry."
Tonight, October 17, beginning at 7 pm, at The Foundry, located at 298 Northampton Street in Buffalo, the Bread and Puppet Theater will be in town for a one night special performance. The presentation is free and open to all.
