When: Sunday, August 31, 2014, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Where: Magazine Beach Park • 719 Memorial Drive • (along the Charles River) • Cambridge

Bread & Puppet Theater's "The Nothing Is Not Ready Circus" is for the not yet existing upriser masses and their kids who need to practice their upriser skills by teaming up with butterflies, cockroaches and elephants. Lions, horses and dogs are also employed to invent the correct rhythmical patterns that fight planetary destruction. The boot flags of the 15th century peasant revolution lead the way, with a lively brass band for accompaniment. Bread & Puppet's "Circus" acts can often be politically puzzling to adults, but accompanying kids can usually explain them.
