New: Force the Mirror Open, 2022 Philly Fringe Festival

Philadelphia’s aerial storytellers present Force the Mirror Open— a unique site-specific circus fantasy spanning two stories of the historic Neighborhood House, September 21-24 in the 2022 Fringe Festival. Six women climb silks, hang from trapezes, and push through unexpected portals, showcasing Tangle’s immersive circus at its best—the powerful, kinetic movements of aerial dance merged with topsy-turvy storytelling that’s as intimate as a shared dream. Limited tickets available now!

About Tangle

"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
