Up next: free outdoor circus on May 28!
On Thursday, May 28 at 6pm, Tangle presents “Intersections,” a free public circus-theater show at the Clark Park Farmers Market! Tangle’s acrobats climb ropes and swing from trapezes undercover as ordinary park visitors, at the popular Farmer’s Market in West Philadelphia’s Clark Park– from vegetable shoppers to families at the playground to commuters on their way home.
“Intersections” celebrates Clark Park as a hub for the diverse communities of West Philadelphia, and explores the chance meetings that happen in our public spaces. Join Tangle for this all-new circus-theater show in one of Philadelphia’s most beloved parks! Rain date Thursday, June 4.
