The event starts at 12:30pm at the General McPherson statue in McPherson Square (15th and K St NW) when The Bread and Puppet Theatre from Vermont, best known for their giant puppets, performs their newest show about the Occupy movement.
Historical characters and roving musicians will lead the audience to other locations downtown with significant social justice histories.
There will be at least 4 stops for the Kabaret, with puppet shows and other performances at each, including the World Bank, the White House and 16th St and I Streets, to commemorate Coxey’s Army, unemployed workers who marched from San Francisco to the Capitol in 1893 to protest the country’s severe economic conditions.
Other performers scheduled are The Shadow Senators from DC presenting a song and cranky show, Quique Aviles performing his one-man show Los Treinta, DC poet Zein Elamine and the Puppet Underground’s new show about a local organizing struggles to make housing a human right.
