The Apocalypse Defiance Circus - Bread and Puppet Theater
From the venue:
The Decatur Arts Alliance is pleased to announce that Bread and Puppet Theater returns to Decatur with a satirical, silly, and political show on Friday, November 2nd at 7:30pm - with $20 tickets!
The Apocalypse Defiance Circus attempts to address the heart of the current moment with a bright barrage of acts spanning many moods, from slapstick to the sublime, all powered by a riotous brass band. Help is provided by stilt-dancers, blue horses, paper maché clouds and tigers. Building on the tradition of the Circus as popular spectacle, performed in the round, and somehow encompassing the ecstasy, sadness and absurdity of the world as a whole, Bread & Puppet's circuses have become an iconic form in their own right, 51 years running.
After the show, Bread & Puppet will serve its famous sourdough rye bread with aioli, and Bread & Puppet’s “Cheap Art” will be for sale. Come early to enjoy themed beverages and snacks, with proceeds benefitting the Decatur Arts Alliance.
