New: In Transit, 2019 Philly Fringe Festival
Stand clear of the closing doors! In Tangle’s newest circus-theater show, nine women climb silks and hang from trapezes as subway rides and bus trips become a platform for aerial dance and intimate moments between strangers. Tangle’s acrobats travel through our public spaces to find love, frustration, and missing umbrellas.
"Tangle Movement Arts has a record of quality-yet-accessible shows—simultaneously lovely and exhilarating." --Julie Zeglen, Philadelphia City Paper
"This all-female company demonstrates their stunning aerial display of strength, creativity and imagination." --Gregory King, Philadelphia danceJournal
"A distinctive brand of circus-dance-theater..." --Josh McIlvain, FringeArts blog
"Tangle Movement Arts turns a series of hanging loops into a stand-in for examining precarious relationships." --Brian Schaefer, the New York Times
"Dazzling moments of theatricality... as much as the company wows with aerial feats, conveying a story is never too far behind. Tangle Movement Arts’ brand of theatre, dance, and aerial work in concert is far more than the sum total of its parts."--Peter Danelski, DCMetroTheaterArts
"A striking presentation of artistry... luring the audience with intricate shapes and emotional authenticity." --TS Hawkins, the Queer Review
