Bread and Puppet turns 50

Shatterer of Worlds
A church-space slowly fills with multitudes of roughly shaped figures.
Perhaps mythic ancient figures – golems, women of Willendorfs, pygmies, giants.
Handmade beautiful grotesques. 
Songs whisper forth from the shadows – found object instrument/machines whistling, klinking, whirring, rattling. 
Puppets are conjured an audience is swallowed.

Below are some photographs from the recent appearance of the Bread and Puppet Theater at the West Park Presbyterian Church, NYC. Taken November 24th, 2013
