Recent Work: Life Lines
Recently: Tangle presented Life Lines, an all-new performance of aerial dance and vertical drama. Strangers collide and are changed forever, empty rooms listen in, and women find their power in flight in this dynamic circus-theater show. Life Lines mixes circus arts with dance, theater, and live music to explore stories of rebuilding strength after sudden changes. Premiered at Old City’s Neighborhood House as part of the 2017 Fringe Festival.

"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
