 Winter Solstice 2014


Thank You 2014!

It has been an amazing year to be grateful for.

Carpetbag Brigade performed "Callings" at the Mesa Arts Center's Spark! Festival in March and had a lovely rehearsal retreat in Ajo. In May we hosted the 2nd annual Global Stilt Congress teaming up with old friends from Flamchen and Wise Fool and new friends from the Brooklyn Jumbies and Bosie Sage. The seeds of the craft were nourished deeply and the network of acrobatic stilters supporting one another grew. In June we performed "Callings" in Director Jay Ruby's hometown of Uniontown, PA and then toured the performance, visiting the wonderfully inspiring "KO Fest" produced by Sabrina Hamilton. Following that we toured New Brunswick, Canada and collaborated in "The Robes of St. Anne"  with Co Julie Danse, Circus Stella and Poetique Desordres. We finished our summer season with a presentation and workshop hosted by Earthdance in Western Massachusetts and then a quick presentation hosted by Julio Thiijs in New York City over Labor Day. 

It is a great blessing to be able to share our work with the world through teaching, touring and performing. 

It is a miracle each year that we succeed in bringing our unique form of spectacle-based drama to the world. As a small non profit 501-c-3 arts organization we are grateful for any support that comes our way.

Our visions far exceed our financial capacity and if you believe in our vision and want to support us and help us thrive we would like to offer you the chance to make a donation before the end of the year. 

All Donations over $50 will receive a complimentary CD with our amazing soundtrack from the Robes of St. Anne, created by the musical duo, The Body Builders (Isabelle Kirouac and Willoughby Arevalo)

Please consider supporting us as we journey into 2015.
