strange stories for
The Fox & Beggar Theater tells stories about imaginary gardens with real toads in them. Productions explore the spaces between street theatre, dance, circus arts and acrobatics, mask-and-puppet theatre, original music, and illustration. The FBT has very recently moved to Minneapolis, MN, where it is excited to be setting up its new home as a sponsored project of Springboard For The Arts' Incubator Program (though the open road will always beckon).
Founded in 2013 by pseudo-bard Nat Allister, the FBT has performed out east 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, and the Hawk & Hawthorne, as well as at LEAF Community Arts and Gratifly Music and Arts Festival. The FBT has performed out west at Oregon Eclipse festival, Portland’s Alberta Abbey, and at the Lookout Arts Quarry.
Our mission is to bring provocative, innovative, and enchanting storytelling to a troubled world, through a broad fusion of both performing and visual arts.
