A TRIBUTE TO... Bread & Puppet's Our Annual Domestic Resurrection Circus, The Pageant (1986-1998) by Ronald T Simon
This selection includes classic Schumann pageantry defined by the archetypal themes of death and resurrection, making this archetypal passage theatrically possible by staging the landscape itself as a canvas for his puppets. In these theatrical tableaus details are often recurring and timeless, including: Godface, sheperds, Mother Earth, birthing, bison, bodies, dancers, skeletons, Mammons, tin cans as tear drops, brooms (for ethnic dusting), Sleepers, white horses, the gates of hell, white birds and Brecht, to list just a few.
