The Bread and Puppet Theater comes to Buffalo every so often, and when it does, it’s not to be missed. The theatrical troupe has been around since the 60s, developing narrative that typically revolves around political, environmental and socio-economic issues. As the times change, so do the productions. But what does remain constant is the quality of the show, the important messages that are broadcast, and the fabulous puppets that always delight.
Per usual, the show is donation based, which means that attendees can chip in any amount that they can. The donation-based support platform means that everyone can attend the show.
The performance is taking place at Buffalo State on Tuesday, May 23, 2017, starting at 7pm. After the show wraps up, the Bread and Puppet troupe will host a homemade bread and “Cheap Art” sale, for guests who just can’t get enough of the talented performers. The art is made affordable so that everyone has a chance to possess beautiful handmade works, not just the wealthy. And bread is a staple of life that everyone has access to due to its simple and inexpensive nature. That’s why so many people feel that the act of breaking bread is a ceremonial act. Those who break bread are giving thanks to the sustenance provided by Mother Nature. So come break bread with this fabulous puppet collective, and be prepared to share the messages that you learn during the show.
The family-friendly production – an Insurrection Mass Containing the Whatforward Circus – will be held at Buffalo State’s Flexible Theater inside the Donald Savage Building.
