Tell It Slant

Tell It Slant

Tangle presents Tell It Slant, an all-new circus-theater show from Philadelphia’s innovative aerial artists. 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.

Tell It Slant premiered at Christ Church Neighborhood House (20 N. American Street) on March 12th at 8pm, March 13th at 8pm, and March 14th at 3pm and 8pm. Guest performers included the internationally performing duo trapeze artists Megan Gendell and Lauren Feldman, who debut a dramatic new act exploring trust and freedom between two people in dynamic motion. Set design was contributed by artist Julia Wilson, whose fiber art sculptures transformed the theater of Christ Church Neighborhood House.
