About Built on Stilts Dance Festival...The Built on Stilts Dance Festival is comprised of work by members of the Vineyard community and by professional performing artists from the island, Boston, NYC, Philadelphia, DC, New Haven, Providence and beyond. Shows might also include live music, storytelling, theater, poetry readings, comedy, circus acts, fitness demos and more!
All shows are appropriate for all ages and, ideally, free to the public.
Built on Stilts is centered on the equity inherent within the human body, around equal opportunities for every body on our stages and in our audiences. The festival is here for all voices, styles, sizes, ages, and beautiful shades of every dancing body. Built on Stilts will redistribute 10% of its annual donations, beginning in summer 2020, to the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund, The American Civil Liberties Union, and the Southern Poverty Law Center, all impactful nonprofits dedicated to civil liberties, to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice.
