The Bread and Puppet Theater presents their family-friendly show, Everything is Fine Circus, featuring Pinky (the Federal Emergency Elephant), The Rotten Idea Theater Company, The Axis of Beagle and more. Take note that if some of the circus acts are politically puzzling to adults, accompanying kids can usually explain them.
In addition to Everything is Fine Circus, Bread and Puppet Theater's residency at the Cyclorama includes The Battle of the Terrorists and the Horrorists, a political art symposium, and a political art exhibit:
