RetroAct (PA) Mar 17-19
Posted February 25, 2016
Tangle Movement Arts presents RetroAct, a dynamic new aerial dance theater show from Philadelphia’s innovative aerial artists. RetroAct’s ten-woman cast mixes traditional circus arts, such as trapeze and acrobatics, with dance, theater, and spoken word, to explore female strength, identity, and relationships between women.

RetroAct is an aerial dance theater remix of the most exciting moments from Tangle’s five years of circus-theater. RetroAct’s acrobats travel through simmering duets, intricate balancing acts, a celebration of campy drag traditions, and a suspended-in-air meditation on the passage of time. A dreamer wakes and dresses for work 20 feet in the air. Two women work out their frustration and flirtation in a dance that traverses the room and reaches the ceiling.
