In the Forest (2018)
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.
Tangle Movement Arts is a circus arts company with a contemporary twist, whose work integrates traditional circus like trapeze and acrobatics with dance, theater, and live music to tell a multi-dimensional story. Philadelphia Weekly says Tangle “blends circus-style acrobatics with a smart theatrical spin.”
