Points of Light (2017)

Tangle's circus-theater in April 2017

Weaving stories of hope, hard-won balance, and unexpected connection with live performances on trapeze and aerial silks, Points of Light premiered at Old City’s Neighborhood House in April 2017.

Tangle’s nine acrobats use trapeze and aerial silks to offer tales of women traveling blindfolded, surviving under the weight of the earth, and climbing to new heights. Points of Light shares fresh stories to support and sustain, bridging movement, music, and spoken word. Tangle performed these intimate portrayals of shared support and individual persistence at the historic Great Hall in Old City’s Neighborhood House.

Broad Street Review says, “If this season has you searching for work devised by and celebrating women (or if you just want some first-class, original acrobatic tales), the latest premiere from Tangle Movement Arts has your ticket.”
