Crash Into the Grass

"This booklet is a facsimile of one of a series of pamphlets by Peter Schumann, printed in the mid-1960's, which protested the Vietnam War. Bob Chaffee mimeographed them at work, and puppeteers hawked them at shows and around New York City's Lower East Side, where Bread & Puppet Theater was based from 1963 until its move to Vermont in 1970."



Wise Fool Basics

Resource handbook with how-to guides and diagrams on making giant puppets, shadow puppets, masks, stilts, paper mache lanterns, and costumes. Wise Fool Puppet Intervention is a theatre arts project dedicated to community celebration and change. In the traditions of public spectacle and site-specific celebration, we combine giant puppetry, mask, stiltdancing, wild costumes, music, movement, fire, and song, bringing them into the streets where they are accessible to all.
