Our Process

How we work together

Tangled Feet have developed a trademark style of experimental performance, which always begins from a process of physical improvisation and play. The performances we make come from our own experiences, the stories of the people we meet, and the tensions we feel in the world around us.

 

 

We work collaboratively and believe that our performances are not finished until completed by the imagination of our audience. We devise our shows with an ensemble of performers, designers and technical team.

Our work is often researched and developed over long periods of time. Our performances take lots of different forms, driven by the theme, content and the relationship we want to create with our audience and the space. All of our work recognises the audience is there and responds to them.

How Tangled Feet are tackling anxiety in children

A report from the Children’s Commissioner at the end of last year found that there is an ‘epidemic of anxiety’ in young people. The number of children seeing psychiatrists has risen by a third, with the highest increase – 31% in a year – seen in those aged 9 and under. It’s a shocking rise. (Thanks to Flossie Waite from Children’s Theatre Reviews for digging out the statistic).   It was this sort of news that prompted us to make Butterflies, a Co-Production with Half Moon, that used anxiety in children as a starting point for a show for 3-8 year olds. We first started making the show in 2017 and did some test performances at Half Moon. This year we have developed the show and it’s touring until Nov 24th.  Alongside the tour we have launched a Mindfulness programme to run in four schools in 2019.
