Tangle is a proud Arts Award Supporter

Tangle is South West England’s African Caribbean Theatre Company.Successfully growing appreciation of BAME-led theatre in this relatively mono-cultural part of the UK, our programme has two main strands:Tangle Company is our virtuoso performance ensemble that tours annually with a new poetically-driven music theatre work, specially designed to offer a strong first entry point to BAME theatre for those who haven’t had the experience before. Tangle Company productions are suitable for delivery in a wide range of spaces such as schools or community centres.Our full touring productions happen every two years. This is presented in our distinctive style combining Southern African ‘township’ and collective theatre techniques (ensemble, a capella song and physical theatre) with aspects of Western theatre practice.We also offer education workshops connected to the themes of our productions and occasional specialist educational workshops.
