Arcosanti Stiltasana 2018 with Helen Goodrum and Alicia Gerstein of The Carpetbag Brigade
Stiltasana is a great event to evolve your skills and meet the wider stilting 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.
Start the full moon weekend and shake off the cobwebs by spending a weekend learning Carpetbag Brigade’s unique acrobatic stilt vocabulary. Participants will learn a mix of acrobatics, butoh and contact improvisation through still point exercises, partner walks, inversions & oppositions and graceful ground movement all on stilts. With a mix of technique and improvisation participants will be given tools to evolve their own sequences. Challenge and classes will be provided for all levels of stilters - beginners, intermediate and advanced. Evolve you skills and meet the broader acro-stilt community.
Enjoy the unique urban desert city of Arcosanti sharing stilt stories by the pool and immersing yourself in the urban laboratory and desert landscape of Arcosanti in Northern Arizona.
