Intersections

As part of the 2015 City of Philadelphia’s Performances in Public Spaces program, Tangle performed “Intersections,” a free public circus-theater show in one of Philadelphia’s most beloved parks!

Tangle’s free, public pop-up circus features acrobats disguised as normal visitors to Clark Park— from vegetable shoppers to families at the playground to commuters on their way home.

“Intersections” celebrates Clark Park as a hub for the diverse communities of West Philadelphia, and explores the chance meetings that happen in our public spaces.

“Intersections” was part of the City of Philadelphia’s Performances in Public Spaces program, managed by the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy.
