New: The Way Out, 2020 Philly Fringe Festival
Philadelphia’s aerial storytellers present The Way Out — an immersive, 100% socially distanced performance for a drive-through audience, as part of the 2020 Fringe Festival. This unique site-specific show unspools across 78 acres of Laurel Hill Cemetery on Thursday October 1 through Saturday October 3. The Way Out is an evening of performance made for the pandemic — capturing a world inside a bubble, a meditation on time and history, and pockets of memory illuminated by flame.

"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
