Global Stilt Congress V (Arizona) May 19-June 2
Posted March 23, 2019
The stilting community will be gathering for two weeks of learning, sharing, evolving and performing.

Global Stilt Congress is a great event to evolve your skills and connect with our global community as we work, train, and relax together. it is for performers, stilters, dancers, yogis, and those with a deep curiosity to explore the capacity of their body and enjoy the unique urban desert city of Arcosanti.

During Global Stilt Congress, invited teachers and directors share their techniques, compositional strategies, and life experiences through classes, lectures, and a culminating site-specific performance project entitled "Citizen Ship—The Legislation."

Global Stilt Congress commences technique week with a guest faculty intensive (May 20–22):
-Aerial stilts
-Stilt partnering with bodies, objects, and sites
-Somatic movement
Technique week concludes with a Carpetbag Brigade acrostilt intensive (May 23–24).

Global Stilt Congress integrates the work in composition week (May 26–June 2), offering participants the opportunity to rehearse and perform with Carpetbag Brigade and experience the creative process that informs the company’s work. The final act is to perform twice in "Citizen Ship—The Legislation," a site-responsive performance presented to the general public at Arcosanti.

Share stilt stories by the pool and immerse yourself in the urban laboratory and desert landscape of Arcosanti in northern Arizona.

We look forward to sharing our stilting community with you.
