Tangled Feet

Is a theatre ensemble and a charity

We create original, visually stunning, transformative performances, sometimes inside theatres but often in other public spaces. We create atmospheres and experiences for the audience which are thrilling, surprising and memorable, which always feel 'live' and in the moment, where the unique reality of this audience, in this moment, right here is acknowledged and celebrated.

See Our Vision >>>

 

We are a dedicated ensemble and believe in long-term rehearsal and performance history. The company formed in 2003 as a group of like-minded artists and friends with a shared vision, and commitment to a collaborative, physical working methodology.

Today, the ensemble has grown to encompass a larger group of 20+ artists as well as a broad family of participants, many of who have worked with us over a number of years.

We love sharing the creative process with new people and younger artists, as an integral part of our production process and in workshops, residencies and participation projects. All of the passion, fun, pain, anger and life experience of the people we meet makes TF's work deeper and richer. In return, we hope to offer people life-affirming, fun creative experiences and to inspire and support younger generations of artists.

Reviewing outdoor theatre: the missing piece of the puzzle?

By KAT JOYCE   This weekend saw us premiering our newest outdoor performance, That Parking Show, at the brilliant Imagine Luton festival. It was a great weekend in a number of ways:  1.      The show, which we've been making for the last three weeks, came together and really seemed to 'land' in front of its first audiences. 2.      Our two new performers, Blayar and Melaina, both made their outdoor debut, nailed their performances, and loved the experience.   3.      Imagine Luton festival, which was brand new last year, has already gained impressive traction and is pulling really big, enthusiastic audiences (and attracting new, unexpected ones) with a fantastic programme of work (thanks Imagine festivals for taking a punt and commissioning us).  4.      The sun shone all weekend. 5.      England won the football 6-1 (our final show gained an extra sound effect half way through with a city-wide live chorus of 'Three Lions' spilling out of various pubs) 6.      An actual proper, renowned dance critic travelled to Luton to review some of the work.      To continue reading click 'Read the whole story' next to the date at the top.
