Bread & Puppet: Our Domestic Insurrection Circus and Pageant at Fort Allen Park

September 2, 2017 @ 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Mayo Street Arts Presents:

Bread and Puppet: Our Domestic Insurrection Circus and Pageant

Saturday, September 2 at Fort Allen Park 5:30pm
Eastern Promenade, Portland Maine
Free Show – B&P will pass the hat
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. 

Fort Allen Park: This grassy spot with water views features seating areas, a gazebo & many historical monuments. Bring a chair or a blanket, a picnic and the whole family!
Free Sourdough rye bread with garlic aioli will be served to the public and Bread and Puppet’s famous Cheap Art will be for sale after the show.
Bread and Puppet Theater returns to Portland Saturday, September 2nd, to present Our Domestic Insurrection Circus, a giant puppet spectacle addressing the urgencies and absurdities of the current moment. The show will take place at 5:30 p.m. on the Eastern Prom of Fort Allen Park. For those who haven’t made it to Glover during the summer to see Bread and Puppet’s 2017 Circus – and for those who want to see the washer women triumph over the billionaires one more time – this is an opportunity to experience a brand-new dose of B&P’s inimitable imagistic slapstick, equal parts visually striking, politically potent, funny and poignant.
