Bread and Puppet's BRAND SPANK'N NEW Lubberland National Dance Company's,
27 Dirt-Cheap Money Dances!

27 DIRT CHEAP MONEY DANCES is about...money.

Money pretends to be  everybody's good uncle but clearly is neither
uncle nor good.

It lures junior citizens into its university and then grinds them up
in its wage slavery mill. You give it a finger and it grabs you, body
and soul, until you flee to Lubberland and fight it with all the
available garbage weaponry of the money civilization.

In these dances, the money-deficient dancers of Lubberland will
employ Karl Marx to put the dirt-cheap aspects of money into timely

.......Working on the theory that more is more, the Lubberlanders invite
volunteer performers to join them in the performances.

Why a Lubberland National Dance Company?

Four years ago Peter Schumann, the director of Bread & Puppet
Theater, decided to return to his roots in dance.  Brushing aside the
aesthetics connected to modern dance and classical ballet, Peter
Schumann claims: "You don't need it, this is not dance. Dance is
something much more original and directly related to your everyday
humdrum than what you think."

Schumann began working with a group of community volunteers he called
the Lubberland National Dance Company. Since then he's made at least
one new Lubberland program each season.

The Lubberland  National Dance Company  is an itinerant dance company
that specializes in problem solving dances, victory dances for victories and
collateral damage dances for victims. The repertory also includes wedding
dances for normally hostile populations and their rulers, national
funeral dances in response to the most recent wars of Lubberland and total
peace and harmony dances with no meaning whatsoever.
