Thank you for coming to Tell It Slant!

In March 2015, Tangle presented Tell It Slant, an all-new circus-theater show from Philadelphia's innovative aerial artists, at Neighborhood House in Philadelphia's Old City. Nine women dance up and down a rope at a crowded party packed with friendship and drama. A dreamer finds herself in an intimate duet with aerial silks. Two best friends toss each other into the air. And a jilted woman flies on trapeze to exact her sassy revenge on the world. Tangle's acrobats explore wide-ranging relationships between women in Tell It Slant's dynamic circus-theater.
