SECOND MESA, Ariz. - The award-winning Hopitutuqaiki Hopi Art School and the Hopi Cultural Center will sponsor a family focused acrobatic stilt performance by the Carpetbag Brigade that brings together the worlds of dance and theater at the Hopi Cultural Center June 19-20.

The Carpetbag Brigade dance-theater company formed in 2011. The group combines acrobatic stilt walking, butoh dance and contact improvisation. Their performances marry modern dance with the raw intensity of physical theater.

The group's performances feature background images that include climate change and scenes from the ocean.

The Carpetbag Brigade first performed in Prescott, Ariz. during the Neptune's Tea Party for the Tsunami on the Square Festival. They have since been on the road giving performances in Bogota, Bucaramanga, Santa Marta, Miami Beach-Florida, Armenia and Medellin as well as across the United States.

The shows are approximately 45 minutes.

The Carpetbag Brigade is composed of 18 people, including two directors, 10 stilt walkers, five musicians and one videographer.

More information is available from the Hopi Cultural Center manager at (928) 734-2401 or (928) 734-0044.
