Explorations into
Bread and Puppet Theater

This page focuses on an exploration of the work of Bread and Puppet Theater - Peter and the late Elka Schumann - from the 1960's with John Bell, former Bread and Puppet company member.  It includes photo documentation of Bread and Puppet's residency at UConn where I, along with other UConn Puppet Arts students, worked with the company to rehearse and perform the The Persians at University of Connecticut in April 2022
