Under the Tangle
29 Jay Street at GK Arts Center
Kick off your week with this “dance mystery.” Under the Tangle tells the story of a young orphaned girl lost in a mysterious wooded labyrinth. Throughout her journey, she twists along the maze finding numerous clues and meeting many unusual characters; a flock of whispering black birds, daunting labyrinth guards, and The Queen of the Lost who lives in the lighthouse. This show explores adolescence using modern dance, absurd costuming, and humor. Recommended for ages 8 and over.
