Seven women collide and are changed forever. In this dynamic circus-theater show, strangers meet their match, empty rooms listen in, and women find their power in flight. Tangle’s acrobats climb trapezes and aerial silks as they face sudden changes, spark chain reactions, and test the hidden threads that bind us.

n one heartbeat, everything around you can shift. Tangle’s acrobats use trapeze and aerial silks to climb above a world turned instantly upside-down. Mixing circus arts with dance and theater, Life Lines navigates the shock of unexpected change and loss– of love, safety, freedom, or physical ability. Innovative aerial storytelling explores the chain reaction of a community healing after sudden disruption, as people learn to hold each other up– or leave each other hanging. Video trailer.

Tangle Movement Arts is a circus arts company with a contemporary twist, whose performances mix traditional circus like trapeze and acrobatics with dance, theater, and live music to tell a multi-dimensional story. Tangle’s work reflects individuals of diverse identities, with an emphasis on queer and female experiences, and is devised collaboratively by its all-female ensemble. Based in Philadelphia, Tangle has been a Philly FringeArts Festival favorite since its inception in 2011.
