Tangle Movement Arts presents Loop
09/18/2014 - 09/20/2014
Tangle Movement Arts presents Loop, a dynamic queer circus-theater show that traces our unseen connections, as part of the 2014 Philadelphia FringeArts Festival. Tangle’s acrobats swing, climb, and weave through suspended loops and strands of rope to embrace—and sometimes to escape—the knots of human relationships.
“Loop explores the choice to grab hold of— or give up on— community,” says Tangle founder Lauren Rile Smith. “Connections with other people both empower and constrain you when you’re making a choice— in ways that aren’t always obvious. We wanted to use aerial dance and acrobatic partnering to explore that dynamic in relationships between women. The women in these stories are literally supported, raised up, held back— or left hanging.”
When: Thursday, Sept. 18 at 8pm, Friday, Sept. 19 at 8pm, Saturday, Sept. 20 at 3pm and 8pm.
Where: Philadelphia Soundstages, 1600 N. 5th Street, Philadelphia PA 19122.
Tickets: $15-20 (discounts for artists, students, seniors, and groups). Purchase online at tangle-arts.com.
