This years Italian Night THE ROBES OF ST. ANNE was a super dynamic performance on stilts that moved the audience across the site from the Visitors Center to the Ceramics Apse, to the Pool and ended up with a ‘tour de force’ in the Colly Soleri Amphitheater.[photo by Erin O’Loughlin]

September 10–24, 2016
Global Stilt Congress is an annual gathering hosted by The Carpetbag Brigade at Arcosanti. It serves as an arena for stilt-oriented performers and practitioners to come together, exchange skills, develop craft, and strengthen our stilt community and network.
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.
Global Stilt Congress is two weeks in length. The 1st week focuses on sharing techniques and the 2nd week focuses on a creative process resulting in a site-responsive performance at Arcosanti.[photo by Sue Kirsch]
