Banjo Bob and Bread and Puppet
September 25, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pmdonation
Camp Meade hosts two powerful exhibits and a musical performance featuring bawdy songs and stand-up comedy this weekend Bob Wolk, (Banjo Bob) joins Bread and Puppet at Camp Meade in Middlesex for an afternoon and early evening double-header. Gates open at 3:00 p.m. for the event. Wolk will be performing on the green while people are perusing two exhibits, checking out a Cheap Art sale, enjoying Bread and Puppets bread and aioli along with libations and refreshments offered at Camp Meade Summer Shack, Red Hen Bakery Café and the Filling Station restaurant.
The Bread and Puppet Bad Bedsheet Philosophy & Existibility Show breathes new life into discarded old bed sheets. Troupe founder Peter Schumann uses cast off, landfill-bound textiles to create several series of king-sized painted Handouts & Mitigations – paradoxical, sometimes dream-like reflections on current global political crises and their possible transcendence. In addition to a performance of Schumann’s Bedsheet Cantastoria – this exhibit features his recent paintings in honor of the life of the late Elka Schumann, whose personal and artistic partnership with her husband was a guiding force of Bread and Puppet Theater for over 60 years.
Banjo Bob’s New Migration Sideshow – American Success Story features mannequins attired in the clothing abandoned by immigrants that he finds in Arizona where he lives 1.5 miles from the border.
The show runs until 6:00 p.m. Admission is by donation. Those interested in volunteering to be in the show or help out with the exhibit contact Alexis Smith: firstname.lastname@example.org
