New show: Points of Light
Points of Light weaves stories of hope, hard-won balance, and unexpected connection with live performances on trapeze and aerial silks. An all-new compilation of circus-theater performance from Philadelphia’s innovative aerial artists, Points of Light premieres at Old City’s Neighborhood House on April 7-8, 2017.
Tangle’s nine acrobats use trapeze and aerial silks to offer tales of women traveling blindfolded, surviving under the weight of the earth, and climbing to new heights. Points of Light offers fresh stories to support and sustain, bridging movement, music, and spoken word.

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