Tangle @ NYU AD The Arts Center

November 15, 2018 - November 17, 2018

Tangle is a giant weaving play space event using colored elastic to create a vibrant, live interactive artwork made by children and their families. Polyglot Theatre, creators of We Built This City, presented in The Arts Center’s inaugural season, return with another inventive work to take over the plazas of NYU Abu Dhabi.

An elastic ball is given to each participant to weave around golden poles. Before long, a dense, multi-coloured landscape is created, a space to play, explore and bounce in. Featuring live music, Tangle is an event where children take the lead, building and contributing to an amazing and enchanting public artwork that everyone can enjoy.

“It is a gentle, fun and brilliantly executed artwork. Fantastic to watch or participate, Tangle is a masterpiece in art making for young people.” Vernon Guest, Sydney Festival

“I have never felt string that was so elasticity in my whole life. I have learnt that just some simple balls of string can be soooo cool.” Eve, aged 10

Polyglot’s tour to Abu Dhabi is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
