Asheville NC’s Fox & Beggar Theater is bringing a new concept to the performing arts: “cirque poétique” (the poetic circus). Featuring surreal, provocative storytelling using the strange logic of dreams, FBT productions showcase contemporary circus arts and acrobatics, dance, mask-and-puppet theatre, original music, animation, and stunning set and costume design.
Founded by Nat Allister in 2013, the FBT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to bringing new forms of performing arts to the southeastern United States, building bridges across its artistic communities, and providing for the training and education of performers, dancers, artists, designers, and others involved in its shows.
