The Dirt Cheap Money Cabaret

The latest edition of Bread and Puppet Theater’s cabaret series, the Dirt Cheap Money Cabaret, features the Jolly Battle between Mountaintop Removal Protesters and Mountaintop Machinery; an ancient take on bananas, a President, and a Chair; and much more, all interspersed with commentary from Karl Marx. The Even Cheaper Accordion and String ensemble will provide soothing sounds for winter-weary nerves.

The Dirt Cheap Money Circus

The Dirt Cheap Money Circus features the billionaire bonus celebration dance, the logic of the US Healthcare System, the history of humanity and the removal of a mountaintop,  interspersed with appearances by Karl Marx, who confronts the 2009 economic situation with his existential thoughts about money and our relationship to it.  And much more.  As always, this year’s circus performs to a live band.

Some of the circus acts are politically puzzling to adults, but accompanying kids can usually explain them. After each performance there will be an opportunity to savor the troupe's famous sourdough rye bread, smeared with garlic aioli, and to purchase the theater's Cheap Art.

About The Bread and Puppet Theater

Bread & Puppet has performed social justice theater with giant puppets for 45 years since forming on the streets of New York City in the 1960s. Their earliest work was on the subjects of war, rats, garbage collection and rent strikes. They pioneered the use of giant puppets in street protests against the Vietnam War. Bread & Puppet is internationally honored and performs each year on their farm in rural Vermont throughout July and August. In the off season, they tour domestically and internationally. So come see them while they're here!

I make no secret my views on drug use. I believe that people use drugs because they work. and I believe in use, not abuse.

to that end, I want to pass on info about an upcoming forum for learning about psychedelics (in NYC)

Hey friends,

I'm hoping you can help spread the word about some exciting goings on with The DC Conspiracy comic collective (http://dcconspiracy.com).

First of all, the group is holding it's 4th annual Counter Culture Fest on Sunday, May 24, at the Soundry in Vienna, VA. It's a day of comics, art, crafts, education, and entertainment, details of which can be found here: http://www.dcconspiracy.com/blog/2009/05/cc-fest-iv-entertainment-and-workshops-1.html.

CCF4 also marks the print debut of the DCC's latest publication, "Doctor Dremo's Taphouse of Tall Tales and Short Stories: The Horrors of War." The writers and artists from the previous Dremo anthology, "The Wonders of Science," will be on hand once again to sign and sell this new 72-page black-and-white book. And "The Horrors of War" is also available to anyone interested who cannot make CCF4, via ComixPress: http://store.comixpress.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=1369.

If you're on Facebook, please feel free to check out the Doctor Dremo group for more on the book and the event.
