The Grasshopper Rebellion Circus is a celebration of 6000 years of human revolution against human management, featuring celastic tigers and celestial grasshoppers, and powered as always by the hot sounds of the Bread and Puppet Circus Band.
Bread and Puppet’s director, Peter Schumann, says of The Grasshopper Rebellion Circus: “The Grasshopper Rebellion Circus is a circus of ruthless critique of 6000 years of unhuman history and the uprisings against it, from the battle of Sempach in 1386 when 1300 peasant women and men, equipped with pitchforks and hayrakes overthrew a 4000 strong state-of-the-art army of knights, to the current battles in which ridiculously small numbers of possibilitarians underthrow — from the toes up — the incompetent billionaire democracy again and again.”
