Bread & Puppet Theater

I had the privilege of seeing Bread & Puppet Theater in action last night. Ever the presence in grassroots arts and social activism, these sublime artists brought one of their pieces to light at a Presbyterian church on the Upper West Side in the 50th year of their existence, turning their attention to the atom bomb and Oppenheimer. A unique dreamy blend of larger-than-life puppetry and music and percussion and inexpensive art and sourdough made this fellow feel like he was a part of many a protest of yore.  It's so interesting to see that point where art and awareness and availability align.
