Bread & Puppet: Faust 3
Doors at 6pm, Show starts at 7pm.  

"FAUST 3 is a show about immigrants, democracy, how to deal with authoritarian powers, the demise of middle-class security, and the possibilities of collective action." -John Bell, Ballard Institute & Museum of Puppetry

As thematically and formally diverse as Goethes Faust 1 and 2, Bread and Puppets Faust 3 draws its public through a dreamlike succession of scenes depicting various salient aspects of proletarian experience in our time: from refugee migration, to the ubiquity of the gun; from the hunger that accompanies food product diversity, to the daily experience of factory workers, the rebellion of prisoners, and the adoration of the sun. Faust 3 himself is played by a small hand-puppet, darting between the hopper and the spout of a giant grain mill. A phalanx of black folding chairs menaces the masses with its resolutions of pity. Lubberland choral dancers hop, wiggle, and whistle, and a purple brass band arrives to jitter levity into the feet of the population.

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