The Lonesome Spectacular

This summer, the Fox & Beggar Theater is hitting the road again in our spectacular GONZAGO Pop-Up Stage, bringing a brand new all-ages circus and puppet show about the challenge of maintaining mental health in the 21st century.

This ensemble-driven production will feature a cast of twelve superhumans and creative oddballs, touring in public spaces from Minneapolis to Detroit in June 2022.




Before the Aesir, there were the Vanir. 

A site-specific fusion of revisionist Norse cosmology, Nordic folk music, contemporary ballet, giant puppetry, and fire dancing; VANAHEIMR reimagines the prophecies of Ragnarök from the perspective of the lesser-known tribe of gods and goddesses, the Vanir. 

Coming to Minnehaha Falls Regional Park December 2022




While journeying home, an errant knight makes camp in a strange forest on the Eve of May.  From the Fox & Beggar Theater comes GREENWOOD, an original Gaelic fairy tale exploring cultural trauma work and the cycles of growth, death, and rebirth that unite us all. 

Coming to Minneapolis May 2023. Stay tuned.
