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.

Co-Directors Residency in Iceland cut short by Covid-19: Finding new ways to work

On March 8th Tangled Feet Co-Directors Kat and Nathan flew to Iceland to take up a two week residency at the University of the Arts Reykjavik. At that stage, 1 month a go, there were 100 cases of Coronavirus in the UK, a rumour spreading that Italy would lock the northern region and a real sense of not knowing what we would return to.   There was a heightened tension at the airport – our first experience of gloved and distanced customer service teams, quiet security screening and much hand washing. We flew on a beautifully clear day, and as the icy vistas came into view from the aeroplane window for the first time we felt a huge sense of awe. The idea of polar icecaps (and their melting) is often very abstract, but this whole landscape of ice stretching in every direction suddenly made the world feel both smaller and more epic
