Join Bread & Puppet for their 14th Year in BigTown Gallery’s Intimate Outdoor Amphitheater for The Diagonal Life Circus (https://www.facebook.com/BigTownGallery/)! We’l be car-pooling from the Meetinghouse. leaving about 3:45 pm, Doors open at 5 pm; show begins at 6 pm. bring a blanket or folding chair and, if you like, a picnic supper.
Reality is either horizontal or vertical or both. The horizontal produces us + eventually takes us back into its giant arms’ embrace. The vertical is the exceptional human predicament, the up + forward striding ambition that makes history + warfare.
The diagonal results from the hurts that the vertical suffers in the process. It is our common human fate, the hard-to-sustain-in-between life, neither up nor down that needs to muster all its strength to lift itself up + the courage to invent tricks that keep it from falling. And this trickery deserves a circus, however small or short, to celebrate the inventiveness of the struggling body + mind in the fight against falling, as well as a victory feast for the successful lifting itself up.
