Tangled Feet are an ensemble of theatre practitioners committed to making original work. The company has developed a trademark style of experimental performance, which always begins from a process of physical improvisation and play. Find out more about us.
Tangled Feet News
We hit the ground running as we start 2013 with two projects laying the foundation for the year. First off we have a one week residency at ARC in Stockton as we develop some new site specific work and a return to inside spaces with the possibility of some national touring in 2014.
The second of our projects see us collaborating with Rainbow SIBS, a support group for children who have a brother or sister with autism. Over 6 weeks we will join Rainbow SIBS to create a Therapeutic Theatre Group. Working within a drama therapy setting the group will work towards creating a performance together.
We are thrilled to have received a grant to support our core costs from The Foyle Foundation to support our 2013 work. This is an exciting development and our first core grant. Thank you Foyle Foundation! We would also like to thank Arts Council England for recent funding towards our Artistic and Organisational development in early 2013.
We are taking bookings for Inflation, our political comedy, for this Summer.
A bouncy castle sits in a public space. On it Tangled Feet try to solve the recession, understand currency trading and keep the darn thing up! Every attempt at order and structure is undermined by the shifting financial landscape and the actions of others. Using an evocative soundtrack, physicality and slapstick comedy Tangled Feet explore the uncertain ground our world is standing on.
“Absolutely fantastic. It was the most original event show I’ve seen in a very long time. Very sophisticated too.”
“Funny, clever, thought provoking”
“Fantastic fun idea with serious political content”
“Inflation should be mandatory viewing for everyone”
We are currently developing some new projects and surprises that will create our 2013 summer season as well as possible projects in the Autumn and beyond so keep your eyes peeled and follow us on twitter or facebook
Summer 2012 was Tangled Feet’s busiest ever as we mounted our first ever season of free outdoor work – Tangled Feet Take To The Streets.
As an integral part of our Take To The Streets season, Tangled Feet were joined by 10 young theatre-makers who came together for 12 days of intensive workshops and a 360 degree introduction to making devised/outdoor work. The young company visited five of the major outdoor festivals at which Tangled Feet were performing, seeing an incredible range of outdoor work as well as getting a good picture of behind-the-scenes touring.
We support recent graduates in the first steps of their career with specially-tailored internships in an area or areas of theatre production which they are particularly keen to get expertise in. Our (paid) interns are an absolutely vital part of the Tangled Feet production team.
Tangled Feet are delighted to announce that The Foyle Foundation have offered us a grant to help support our core costs. This is a very exciting development and we are looking for other charitable trusts and foundations to match this gift.
