Bread & Puppet Theater Performance

World renowned Bread & Puppet Theater will be performing on Star Island!


The Bread and Puppet production on Star Island, the “Overtakelessness Circus”, is inspired by a poem of Emily Dickenson, “The Overtakelessness of Those.” The performance showcases a group of stone-age technology puppeteers, brass players, and percussionists who highlight the prominent forward-moving passions and politics of our capitalist culture.The “Overtakelessness Circus” is driven by the Bread and Puppet Brass Band, playing from the Dixieland Jazz tradition. Expected in attendance will be corporate overlords, tigers and clouds, Zeus, Kasper, a few frogs, and Emily Dickinson. After the performance, the audience is welcome to stay and check out all the masks and puppets.
