the only Bay Area performance of the amazing

BREAD AND PUPPET’S Apocalypse Defiance Circus

at the Forest Meadows Amphitheatre at Dominican University of California

October 29th, 2022 at 3:00 PM


Bread and Puppet’s Apocalypse Defiance Circus

The Apocalypse Defiance Circus attempts to address the heart of the current moment with a bright barrage of acts spanning many moods, from slapstick to the sublime, all powered by a riotous brass band. Help is provided by stilt-dancers, blue horses, paper maché clouds and tigers. Building on the tradition of the Circus as popular spectacle, and somehow encompassing the ecstasy, sadness and absurdity of the world as a whole, Bread & Puppet’s circuses have become an iconic form in their own right, 51 years running!

After each show, Bread and Puppet will serve its famous sourdough rye bread with aioli, and Bread and Puppet’s “Cheap Art” – books, posters, postcards, pamphlets and banners from the Bread and Puppet Press – will be for sale.

Show Length: Approximately 1 hour

Please purchase your tickets advance. For the comfort of all, we strong suggest you wear an N95 mask during the performance. Actors will not be masked.

Everyone is Welcome!  If you need free tickets, please email with the number of tickets needed.

The Bread and Puppet Theater is an internationally celebrated company that
champions a visually rich, street-theater brand of performance art filled with music, dance and slapstick. Believing that theater is a basic necessity like bread, the company frequently brings its work to the streets for those who may not otherwise go to the theater. Its shows are political and spectacular, with puppets often on stilts, wearing huge masks with expressive faces, singing, dancing and playing music.
