Fourth Annual East Coast Puppetista Tour! PDF Print E-mail
Leads up to Vigil to Close the SOA

Once again Cardboard Chaos hits the road in its annual tour to help shut down the U.S. Army School of the Americas. This November Cardboard Chaos presents a brand new circus. "When the Leeves break" looks at the catastrophic effect of Hurricane Katrina in the context of race, class, the war in Iraq, and the policies of the Bush administration. The show features Uncle Sam's Little Global Circus and their provocative mix of circus, puppetry, political satire and original music.

The traveling road show plans an East Coast tour in early November to:
  • organize communities to participate in and support the November 17-19 Vigil in Georgia
  • close the SOA
  • work for justice with the people of the Americas

  • Friday, November 17: Columbus, Georgia. Performance at Howard Johnson's on Veterans Parkway. 8 PM. In addition to the circus, we offer your community workshops in making giant puppets and political theater, all in Cardboard Chaos' distinctive style of "turning love and anger into creativity and resistance."

    Last year's tour was an inspiration and rallying point for hundreds of activists in Connecticut, New York, Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia as they organized for the November SOA Watch actions.

    Performers in the troupe are puppeteers, stilt walkers, jugglers, political clowns and musicians, who since November of 2000 have been producing the colorful mass pageants and giant puppets at the SOA Watch demonstrations.

    Funds raised on the tour will support Cardboard Chaos puppetistas in producing this year's mass pageant and giant puppets.

    For more information on shows or for booking, please contact Jake Weinstein at 203-562-1471.

    The Cardboard Chaos puppetistas are also looking for a van/small bus that could be used for the tour. Please contact Jake if you have one!
