Spectacle Based Drama

Creating beauty and story with a body at risk. 

True pioneers at the art of acrobatic stilt dancing, The Carpetbag Brigade masters a unique theatrical language in the delicate overlap of physical theater, dance and circus. Rising with beauty, falling with grace and conjuring ephemeral magic with the movement and action of their powerful bodies, the performers emanate and pulse like the sea at twilight. Balancing intensely raw and precarious physical expression with refined and sublime drama, a Carpetbag Brigade stilts performance fosters a sense of psychic intimacy, poetic dialogue, and mythic imagery indoors or outdoors and excels in a full spectrum of venues: proscenium theaters, parking lots, city parks, side streets rock concerts or black boxes.
