September 28, 2018This Past weekend Arcosanti had the unique pleasure of hosting, Stiltasana, organized by Carpetbag Brigade and taught by company members Helen Goodrum, Alicia Gerstein and Levana Prud’Homme. Stiltasana is an event during which participants get to evolve their skills and meet the wider stilting community. There were times during everyone trained and worked hard, and there was much needed relaxation as well.Those who were present were performers, stilters, dancers, yogis, and just plenty of people with a deep curiosity to explore the capacity of their body.Classes were provided for all levels of stilters – beginners, intermediate and advanced. And the participants learned a mix of acrobatics, butoh and contact improvisation through still point exercises, partner walks, inversions & oppositions and graceful ground movement all on stilts.Everyone learned an amazing variety of skills, which are sure to be incorporated into their own performances. If you’re interested in attending one of the Carpetbag Brigade’s workshops and/or demonstrations, feel free to check out their website. This is just one of many exciting things happening at Arcosanti. Make sure to check back in for another scoop, and stay tuned!(Photos by Sue Kirsch and text by Jesse Fernandez)
