In the months of July and August 2014, The Carpetbag Brigade prepared “The Robes of St. Anne” with Circus Stella and Julie Co Danse. The collaboration, directed by Jay Ruby travelled to the Beaumont Chapel along the Petitcodiac River near Moncton, New Brunswick. Carpetbag Brigade taught and worked alongside acrostilters from Moncton, New Brunswick and Montreal, Canada to build a tableau of work entitled “The Robes of St. Anne” This ambulant outdoor stilts spectacle-based drama was presented at the Festival du Cirque de Dieppe, The 450th Anniversary of Prince Edward Island and the Congres Mondial Acadien during the Summer of 2014.

The Carpetbag Brigade also presented their stilts repertory performance “Callings” during this time at the same locations.
