Tangle Movement Arts
Saturday, September 12
Signal to turn. Lock the door. Smile. Tangle’s acrobats build homes, recreate family, and give neighborly advice in a new show merging circus arts, dance, and theater. Against a kinetic cityscape of suspended rope and silk walls, this innovative all-female company negotiates life’s unspoken rules and expectations.

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 is devised collaboratively by its all-female ensemble, and reflects individuals of diverse identities, with an emphasis on queer and female experience. Based in Philadelphia, Tangle has been a FringeArts favorite since its inception in 2011. Philadelphia City Paper says, “Tangle Movement Arts has a record of quality-yet-accessible shows–simultaneously lovely and exhilarating.” “The Girl’s Guide to Neighborly Conduct” is created and performed by Kate Aid, Maura Kirk, Rebecca MoDavis, Sal Nicolazzo, Lauren Rile Smith, Lee Thompson, and Deena Weisberg, with lighting design by Kae Greenberg.
