Weaving Reuse into the Fringe: Tangle Movement Arts

When the talented storytellers behind Tangle Movement Arts were sourcing supplies for their latest performance they incorporated reclaimed fabric, yarn, paper, and more from the RE into their stunning structural set. In the Forest is premiering as part of the 2018 Philadelphia Fringe Festival.

Philadelphia’s innovative aerial storytellers presents In the Forest, an immersive world of circus-theater that literally surrounds the audience with an dynamic 360-degree display of aerial dance, live music, giant yarn sculptures, and circus magic.

In the Forest’s acrobats navigate a world of secrets, shadows, trapeze, and aerial silks in this complexly woven circus story. Here, threads guide travelers into new worlds and each path is an adventure. Audiences choose their view and explore unique landscapes of light and shade, trapeze and aerial silks, live music, and twisting tales for experiences that change at each turn. The 3D sculptural set of In the Forest is crafted by interdisciplinary artist Jenna Reece, featuring thousands of yards of fabric and yarn donated by the knitters of West Philadelphia.
