Time for a show that really steps up its game. The California-based Carpetbag Brigade is hosting the annual Global Stilt Congress, and this time it's happening right here in Arizona. For two weeks, Arcosanti will serve as the arena for stilt performers of all levels to learn, connect, share, and ultimately exhibit their skills in a site-specific performance.
