Join Treehouse Shakers, an award-winning dance and theater company, with their newest dance-play, Under the Tangle. Under the Tangle takes family audiences on a theatrical journey that is filled with surprise, wonder and discovery.
Visually Vibrant, Under the Tangle, is the original dance-play about an adolescent girl who becomes ensnarled in a labyrinth after the sudden loss of her parents. Throughout her journey, she twists along the brambling pathways being confronted with obstacles, finding numerous clues and meeting many unusual characters: a flock of birds, the daunting labyrinth guards, and the Queen of the Lost perched upon a grim tower. As a metaphor for adolescence, this visual and artistic adventure is a journey of obstacles, relationships, and discoveries, which strengthen the heroine’s character, and eventually set her free from the labyrinth. Under the Tangle is a performance must-see to be enjoyed and delighted by the adventurer in us all.
