Recently, Puppet Underground and Occupy DC hosted a ‘Roving Kabaret’ (‘K’ as in K St., which is one of the locations where the organization has set up tent) of various theatrical troupes that support the Occupy movement. Actors, occupiers and attendees toured the nation’s capital, stopping at locations with historical significance to workers’ rights. At each spot, organizers explained why the area was chosen and theatrical troupes and musicians performed.

Follow along with our ‘guided tour’ of the event, including photos of the day, historical tidbits, maps and recordings of folks who took part.
