Back by popular demand, the award-winning Bread and Puppet Theater, featuring Artistic Director Peter Schumann and his troupe of 4 Vermont puppeteers, returns for a third year to the Cyclorama bringing their signature powerful imagery, masked characters, and giant papier-mâché puppets. The family friendly The Sourdough Philosophy Circus is about the need for human fermentation, taking a lesson from how apple cider is made. The concept is applied to dancing zebras and turkeys and free range cows. The show is run by a bunch of cooks, specialists in cooking the various stews and pancakes of our everyday first world existence. Additional commentary is provided by the Rotten Idea Theater Company. Music is by the Sourdough Philosophy Brass Band, joined by local musicians. Performed by the Bread & Puppet Company, along with a large number of local volunteer puppeteers. Take note that some of the circus acts are politically puzzling to adults, but accompanying kids can usually explain them. After each performance there will be an opportunity to savor Schumann's famous sourdough rye bread, smeared with garlic aioli, and to purchase the theater's legendary "cheap art."
