In the Forest

In the Forest at the Rotunda in the 2018 Fringe Festival

Each path tells a story. Tangle’s acrobats and 360-degree sculptural set surround you in In the Forest, an immersive circus-theater show where threads guide travelers into new worlds. Choose your view and explore a landscape of light and shade, trapeze and aerial silks, and twisting tales for an experience that changes at each turn. In the Forest premieres at the Rotunda in West Philadelphia on September 12-15, 2018, as part of the 2018 Philadelphia Fringe Festival.

Threads guide travelers while guardians build paths. Whispers gather in secret corners. A scientist unspools her hypothesis, and weaves a thesis out of fabric, yarn, and stolen treasures. With In the Forest, Philadelphia’s innovative aerial storytellers mix trapeze, aerial silks, and an expansive sculptural set for an unforgettable experience. In the Forest is a world of movement and sculpture, in which the audience may wander freely and choose which pathway to follow. Limited seating available. PLEASE NOTE: Wear comfortable walking shoes for your trip into this circus-theater experience that unfolds in every dimension! Venue is wheelchair-accessible; please contact us at 215-266-6215 or with any questions regarding your mobility during the show.
