Global Stilt Congress presents
“The Legislation” Ambulant Acrobatic Stilt Performance
With The Carpetbag Brigade / Flam Chen
& members of Brooklyn Moko Jumbies / Circus Stella
“The Legislation” is the culminating event of Global Stilt Congress 2014. Diverse performers from throughout the Americas engage the visionary arcological environment of Paolo Soleri’s urban laboratory, Arcosanti, with ambulant acrobatic stilts, aerial dance and live music. Engineered by the cross-cultural creatives of The Carpetbag Brigade Physical Theater Company Global Stilt Congress gathers stilters from different traditions to share techniques and engage in a site-specific creative process. The Legislation shares the results of this process openly with the public in an evening of artistic exploration amidst the unique architecture of an experimental community in the desert.
Participating in “The Legislation” this year will be members from the performance groups Brooklyn Moko Jumbies, Circus Stella from New Brunswick and Quebec, and local Arizona favorites The Carpetbag Brigade and Flam Chen. We will also have guests from Colombia and Mexico.
Accompanying “The Legislation” will be the ambulant musicians Meg Bohrmann on Accordion, Inesis Vitols on Violin and Jonathan Best on Vocals and Keyboard.
The musical trio will also present a short concert before The Carpetbag Brigade presents their internationally renowned acrostilt performance “Callings” see further details below.
To cap off the evening DJ Logan Dirtyverbs will drop the beats for be a Cumbia Dance Party underneath the Arcosanti arches!
