Subject

Experimental Theater

Description

Bread and Puppet Theater is a radical theater group founded in 1962-63 in New York City by sculptor, dancer, baker and German émigré, Peter Schumann. During the 1960s, the experimental troupe participated in anti-war protests with large-scale puppets and was enmeshed in the countercultural scene. In 1970, they relocated to Plainfield and then Glover, Vermont, where they continue to perform today. The name of the group refers to their tradition of sharing bread with the audience to symbolize community and the significance of art to everyday life.
