Pop-up performance TBA
Closing Reception: Thursday May 30th 6-9pm
Bread and Puppet shows are a whirl of puppets, social commentary, political activism, dance, and music. And there really is bread, baked on site and shared with the audience after the performance.
Founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann and based in Glover, Vermont, Bread and Puppet has a long history in Philadelphia and Northern Liberties. They performed at the dedication of Liberty Lands in 2000 and have returned many times since. The photographs on display were made in Philadelphia and Glover from 2000 through 2018. Bread and Puppet will be performing Diagonal Life: Theory and Praxis at the Rotunda in West Philly May 2-5.
Neil Kohl is a photographer who lives and works in Philadelphia.
