This spring and summer the ensemble of The Unseen Ghost Brigade are building a great raft called home and creating a historically-based street theater/circus performance entitled: 'Renegade Phantasms or The Shadow Cast Along the Banks of The Mississippi'. A originally devised performance incorporating music, puppetry, clowning, acrobatics and more. This coming June we will float them both two-thousand miles south down The Great Mississippi River from Minneapolis to New Orleans to share our art with free performances in the towns and cities and riverbanks along the way. We hope to engage the communities we visit with the spirit and power of communal joy and to raise consciousness about the intricate relationship between industry, nature and human happiness. The money raised through this site will be used to supply us with sustenance and other travel expenses on this three to four month floating tour. Thank you soooooo much for your support!

For more information on our performance and biographies of the ensemble check out our website, http://sites.google.com/site/theunseenghostbrigade/, and follow our progress on our blog http://theunseenghostbrigade.blogspot.com/
