*The Grasshopper Rebellion Circus, *a large-scale puppet spectacle that explains and teaches riot and rebellion against intolerable situations with the help of state of the art paper-maché weaponry and the appropriate riotous Bread and Puppet Brass Band.

B&P director, Peter Schumann, says of *The Grasshopper Rebellion Circus*: “Tigers roar, apes drum their chests, horses neigh, and celestial grasshoppers teach ICE agents the basics steps of grasshopper rebellion dancing. A paradise investigation team analyses the earthlings’ relationship to paradise, while major representatives of Mother Earth attend a festive puerto rican dance of liberation from natural and political disaster.”

Bread and Puppet comes to Missoula as part of a 14 week tour across the country and back with *The Grasshopper Rebellion Circus* and *The Basic Byebye Show.*

After the performance Bread and Puppet will serve its famous free sourdough rye bread with aioli, and Bread and Puppet’s “Cheap Art” – books, posters, postcards, pamphlets and banners from the Bread and Puppet Press – will be for sale.

Bread & Puppet Theater is an internationally celebrated company that champions a visually rich, street-theater brand of performance art filled with music, dance and slapstick. Its shows are political and spectacular, with huge puppets made of paper maché and cardboard. Founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann on New York City's Lower East Side, the theater has been based in the North East Kingdom of Vermont since the early 1970s.
