The Fox & Beggar Theater is the ongoing project of writer/director Nat Allister, telling stories about imaginary gardens with real toads in them. FBT productions explore the spaces between physical theatre, dance, contemporary circus arts and acrobatics, mask-and-puppet theatre, musical performance, and visual art. The FBT currently and happily resides at the Lookout Arts Quarry outside Bellingham, Washington.
Founded in 2013, the FBT has performed on the East Coast at the Montford Park Amphitheater, The Orange Peel, The Diana Wortham Theatre, The UNSCA Stevens Center, The Bardo Performing Arts Center, 7 Stages Theatre, The Peace Center, The Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, as well as at LEAF Community Arts and Gratifly Music and Arts Festival. The FBT has performed on the West Coast at Oregon Eclipse Festival and Portland’s Alberta Abbey.
The FBT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to creating innovative works of physical theatre, to building bridges between artistic communities, and to providing for the training and education of performers, dancers, designers, technicians, and other artists involved in its shows.
