About

The Fox & Beggar Theater brings something unusual to the performing arts: “cirque poétique” (the poetic circus). Featuring complex, provocative storytelling using the strange logic of dreams, FBT productions showcase dance, stagecraft, contemporary circus arts and acrobatics, mask-and-puppet theatre, original music, cutting-edge animation, and innovative set and costume design.

Founded by Nat Allister in 2013, the FBT spent three seasons in Asheville NC, before moving to Portland OR in Summer 2017. 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.
