Bread and Puppet Theater Founder Peter Schumann on 50 Years of Art and Resistance

“Occupy movement. It’s not gone. It’s just asleep. … It’s not good enough to just analyze it or complain it, or what have you. It has to be transformed, has to be put in a grinding bag, ground up, made into something, and then produce with it.” I worked with Peter in 1965-6. It was one of my seminal early experiences, along with participating in Rauschenberg’s event for “9 Evenings,” hearing Cage’s “4.33” and seeing Yoko Ono’s “Cut Piece.” Except for Rauschenberg, all work about cheap, simple means for powerful effects.
