Tangle Movement Arts Michael Ermilio/Tangle Movement Arts

A performer in the Tangle Movement Arts company does aerial moves.

The aerial dance company Tangle, comprised of 10 women and based in Philadelphia, is combining performances from the company's last five years into a new, innovative show called "RetroAct." It will be performed March 17 through the weekend.

The show will include dance, storytelling and aerial acrobatics to create a circus-theater spectacle. 

The acrobats in "RetroAct" will perform pieces that tell the story of a dreamer waking and dressing for work 20 feet in the air and the drama of two women working through frustration and flirtation in a dance that will take them to the ceiling. 

Expect drag, balancing acts and dance duets as well.

For the show, international trapeze artist Megan Gendell and longtime Tangle collaborator Nina Giacobbe will make guest appearances. 

Tickets begin at $15 for students, seniors, artists and groups.
