Hemispheric Casserole

The workshop culminated in a street procession with Encuentro participants and local musicians on a theme adapted from Peretz's story, Transmigration of a Melody. In our retelling, the "melody" is casserole music, public banging on pots and pans, as it travels from Argentina factory workers to Mexico City’s "Yo Soy 132" to Occupy Wall Street to Quebec students to the Encuentro.


Great Small Works was founded in 1995 by a collective of artists, veterans of Bread and Puppet Theater—John Bell, Trudi Cohen, Stephen Kaplin, Jenny Romaine, Roberto Rossi and Mark Sussman—to create theater at the heart of social life. The company draws on folk, avant-garde, puppet and popular theater traditions to address contemporary issues.
