Cardboard Chaos Presents: “When the Levee Breaks”

November 9, 2005 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm EST

Once  again Cardboard Chaos hits the road in its annual tour to help shut down the U.S. Army School of
the Americas. The show features Uncle Sam’s Little Global Circus and their provocative mix of circus, puppetry, political satire and original music. When the Levee Brakes looks at the catastrophic effects of Hurricane Katrina in the context of race, class, the war in Iraq and the lies of the Bush administration. 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.

Sponsored by Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace, Veterans for Peace, and the Sanctuary for Independent Media. The event is preceded by a potluck.

An event flier for the puppet theater troupe Cardboard Chaos, for their performance "When the Levee Breaks" at The Sanctuary for Independent Media on Wednesday, November 9th 2005. In the center of the flier is a square picture of a large puppet participating in an outdoor event. It has a giant blue face and it's torso there is a red heart with the earth in its center. It reads "Global Justice, Close the SOA" (School of the Americas).

We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
