Paper Maché and Bread against Capitalism
The Bread and Puppet Theater in Vienna
The Vermont-based Bread and Puppet Theater is one of the oldest, nonprofit, self-supporting theatrical companies in the US.
Four Bread & Puppeteers are currently on tour. On their stop in Vienna, they show:
"Cantastoria Extravaganza", a dream-like program that weaves together 5 Bread & Puppet Cantastoria.
“Cantastoria”, an Italian word literally translating to “sung story”, refers to the technique of picture-story recitation, involving a spoken or sung narration accompanied by painted banners.
Interspersed throughout these performances is a basic byebye throughline, where we bid adieu to some of the byproducts of capitalism.
