Bread & Puppet Theater returns to TSL with Faust 3, a proletarian rumination on displacement, heaven, and satisfaction in the tradition of Medieval Faust puppet shows and Goethe’s epic verse drama. As thematically diverse as Goethe’s Faust’s 1 and 2, Bread and Puppet’s Faust 3 draws its public through a dreamlike succession of scenes depicting 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. Bread & Puppet Theater is an internationally recognized company that champions a visually rich, streettheater
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. Founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann on New York City’s Lower East Side, the theater has been based in Northeastern Vermont since the early 1970s. For more information visit www.breadandpuppet.org.
