    Tangle Movement Arts presents all-new circus-theater at the Icebox Project Space, March 23-24!

    When everything is wrong, do you ground yourself first—or charge into the flames? In ELEMENTS OF FRICTION, trapeze and aerial silks play out elemental tensions. Tangle's acrobats spark connection, flow between worlds, absorb new ideas, and drift into fresh territory.

    Mixing live music, dynamic acrobatics, and video installation by immersive digital artist Carver Audain, Tangle's ten-woman cast searches for balance as stone strikes flame and wind ripples water. ELEMENTS OF FRICTION offers a patchwork of strategies, a toolkit of renewal and resistance, and an explosion of aerial dance.

    Tangle Movement Arts is a circus arts company with a contemporary twist, whose work integrates circus with dance, theater, and spoken word to tell a multi-dimensional story. A Philly Fringe favorite since 2011, Tangle has been praised for "blending circus-style acrobatics with a smart theatrical spin."
    Venue is wheelchair-accessible.
