The Sanctuary at the RotundaMap
Every path tells a story. Tangle’s acrobats and 360-degree sculptural set surround you in an immersive circus-theater show where threads guide travelers into new worlds. Choose your view and explore a landscape of light and shade, trapeze and aerial silks, and twisting tales for an experience that changes at each turn.
$14–$20 / 80 minutes
Tangle’s acrobats navigate a world of secrets, shadows, trapeze, and aerial silks in this complexly woven circus story. In the Forest’s set is crafted by interdisciplinary artist Jenna Reece, featuring thousands of yards of fabric and yarn donated by the knitters of West Philadelphia. The audience is invited into the center of this universe, for a circus-theater experience that unfolds in every dimension. When worlds meet, sparks fly: A scientist weaves her thesis out of fabric, yarn, and stolen treasures. A sphinx guards a palace of broken furniture. A farmer harvests her crop of colors, a wandering musician holds the key to every story, and a warrior strikes out to protect her sister.
