Queer circus-theater in Philadelphia FringeArts Festival: Surface Tension

Tangle Movement Arts, Philadelphia's all-female circus-theater company, presents Surface Tension, a dynamic aerial dance theater show full of intimate balancing acts, awkwardly honest confessions, and dynamic circus arts.

In Surface Tension, a Tinder date turns into a rocky relationship for two women whose acrobatic duet reaches the ceiling. A young professional works out which face to show the world via a journey on aerial silks. And an advice columnist scrambles into the air to hide her own personal crisis. In this new full-length circus-theater show, Tangle’s aerial dancers dive into a world of unexpected changes, and push through the forces that pull us together.

Merging circus arts with theater, dance, and a queer sense of community, Tangle presents this new work as part of the 2016 FringeArts Festival.
