The Vermont-based Bread and Puppet Theater is one of the oldest, nonprofit, self-supporting theatrical companies in the US. Four Bread & Puppeteers are currently on tour. On their stop in Vienna, they show: „Cantastoria Extravaganza“, a dream-like program that weaves together 5 Bread & Puppet Cantastoria. “Cantastoria”, an Italian word literally translating to “sung story”, refers to the technique of picture-story recitation, involving a spoken or sung narration accompanied by painted banners. Interspersed throughout these performances is a basic byebye throughline, where we bid adieu to some of the byproducts of capitalism.
