Check out thi
s article in the Huffington Post about Global Stilt Congress: "Global Stilt Congress, A Tsunami of Transcultural Expression at Arcosanti".
The roots of our work are here in Arizona and we are happy to be back in the dry heat of the southwest after our summer journeys. There are lots of public events coming up starting with the Arco-Tsunami Festival on the 10th and 17th of October where you can catch the cutting edge of acrobatic stilt performance and see an international cast of performers conduct a site specific procession on the grounds of Arcosanti.
Later in the month we work with choreographer Kelly Keenan to research new material, which will be presented as a work in progress at the Tom Von Deck resurrected Tsunami on the Square on October 24th. You will see us around 8:00 pm that evening.
Christopher Mankowski and Jay Ruby teach a butoh / text / song workshop at the Flying Nest on October 25 and at the end of the month Jay Ruby presents his new solo work in Prescott and Flagstaff.

Arco-Tsunami festival is a two weekend festival of open air and site responsive performance at Arcosanti, Arizona just under an hour north of Phoenix, Arizona.
Hosted by The Carpetbag Brigade Physical Theater company the
Arco-Tsunami festival integrates the pioneering edge of acrobatic stilts with ensemble theater practice.
See shows, learn stilts, be apart of our community.
Once upon a time, Carpetbag Brigade hosted this event. We are curious about Tom Von Deck's resurrection of the event and will present a new work in progress that is the result of our new stilt movement research with Kelly Keenan. See us at 8 pm
