New show: Life Lines

Coming to the 2017 FringeArts Festival! With Life Lines, Tangle presents 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. Premieres at Old City’s Neighborhood House on September 6-9, 2017.

Life Lines - September 2017


"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
