Next stop, Philly Fringe! Tangle Movement Arts, Philadelphia’s aerial storytellers, present In Transit, a new circus-theater show that explores the ordinary and extraordinary moments found on public transportation. Nine women climb silks and hang from trapezes as subway rides and bus stops become a platform for aerial dance and intimate moments between strangers. Mixing live music, acrobatic movement, and theatrical magic, In Transit premieres at Old City’s Neighborhood House on September 4-7, 2019.
Tangle’s all-female cast swings, balances, and flies above the daily grind and remarkable surprises of our routine paths. In Transit travels through unexpected connections, quick changes, and private lives colliding in public spaces—as Tangle’s acrobats transcend the daily commute to find love, frustration, and missing umbrellas.
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.”
