New: In the Forest

New show! On September 12-15, Tangle presents In the Forest, an all-new immersive circus-theater show from Philadelphia’s innovative aerial storytellers, at the Rotunda in West Philadelphia as part of the 2018 Fringe Festival. Tangle’s acrobats and 360-degree sculptural set surround you in In the Forest, an immersive circus-theater show where threads guide travelers into new worlds. Choose your view and explore a landscape of light and shade, trapeze and aerial silks, and twisting tales for an experience that changes at each turn.

About Tangle

"Tangle Movement Arts has a record of quality-yet-accessible shows—simultaneously lovely and exhilarating." --Julie Zeglen, Philadelphia City Paper

"This all-female company demonstrates their stunning aerial display of strength, creativity and imagination." --Gregory King, Philadelphia danceJournal

"A distinctive brand of circus-dance-theater..." --Josh McIlvain, FringeArts blog

"Tangle Movement Arts turns a series of hanging loops into a stand-in for examining precarious relationships." --Brian Schaefer, the New York Times

"Dazzling moments of theatricality... as much as the company wows with aerial feats, conveying a story is never too far behind. Tangle Movement Arts’ brand of theatre, dance, and aerial work in concert is far more than the sum total of its parts."--Peter Danelski, DCMetroTheaterArts

"A striking presentation of artistry... luring the audience with intricate shapes and emotional authenticity." --TS Hawkins, the Queer Review
