Undercover Circus in a West Philly Park: Tangle Movement Arts at Clark Park Farmers Market

Tangle - Intersections 4On Thursday, May 28, 2015, June 4, 2015, (rain date!) innovative local circus artists Tangle Movement Arts presents INTERSECTIONS, a FREE aerial dance theater show at the popular Thursday evening Farmers Market in West Philadelphia’s Clark Park. The show will feature acrobats disguised as normal visitors to the popular Clark Park Farmers Market, from vegetable shoppers to playground-visiting children to commuters on their way home. According to Tangle founder Lauren Rile Smith, “INTERSECTIONS will explore the dynamics of daily life and celebrate the chance meetings that happen in our public spaces.”

Tangle Movement Arts is a circus arts company with an interdisciplinary focus, whose work integrates traditional circus like trapeze and acrobatics with dance, theater, and live music to tell a multi-dimensional story. Tangle’s work reflects individuals of diverse identities, with an emphasis on queer and female experiences, and is devised collaboratively by its all-female ensemble. INTERSECTIONS is part of the City of Philadelphia’s Performances in Public Spaces program: visit creativephl.org/PerformancesinPublicSpaces for more information.
