Tangle presents “Elements of Friction”– new circus-theater at the Icebox Project Space!

Tangle’s acrobats spark connection, flow between worlds, absorb new ideas, and drift into fresh territory. Inspired by the rhythms of nature and the power of collective action, Elements of Friction‘s trapeze and aerial silks play out elemental tensions. Mixing live music, dynamic acrobatics, and video installation by immersive digital artist Carver Audain, Tangle’s ten-woman cast searches for balance as stone strikes flame and wind ripples water. Elements of Friction offers a patchwork of strategies, a toolkit of renewal and resistance, and an explosion of aerial dance.
