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.

Half Life

By Sara Templeman   Life expectancy in the UK is 80 years old. Most of Tangled Feet’s core ensemble and founding members will be turning 40 soon. It’s made us think about what life is like as you approach your expected halfway mark. Also what was it like half a life ago, and half that time again? What will it be like in another 40 years? In this intergenerational show we ask different age groups these life questions. What’s your world like? What do you care about? What’s important? What do you look forward to? What will life be like in 10, 20, 40 years time?!   Half a life ago, the founding members of Tangled Feet met at Middlesex University and embarked on a massive journey together. 10 individuals all met studying for a drama and theatre studies degree and formed the company. All of us are still involved in the company in some way. We run everything ourselves from general management, artistic direction, finance, social media and marketing, production, casting, participation, fundraising to drama-therapy projects. What is at the core of our company is the individuals who have always put in that little bit extra, harnessed new skills to evolve as an ensemble, to grow and expand. Who knew 20 years ago we would still be going?   To continue reading click 'Read the whole story' next to the date at the top.
