A colorful outdoor public play space that becomes a vivid art playground
If you have kids aged between 2 and 12, have no plans yet with the family between the 8th and the 17th of November during the weekends, then, we have got something you should definitely register for.
It is the first time we have heard about “Tangle – Polyglot Theater”, an art concept designed for kids and coming from Australia that is touring Abu Dhabi and will stop at NYUAD for a few days.
How does Tangle work?
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.
Using colored elastic, beautiful two-metre poles and live music, the Tangle space is transformed from an empty site to an extraordinary woven installation over a period of hours.
As children and adults enter Tangle – each child in control of their own ball of colored elastic – a winding and weaving design begins to emerge around the poles, filling the space with color. Once their ball of elastic is finished, they start to work with the elastic they see around them and the play begins in earnest – with stretching, using entire bodies to pull and entangle the material getting completely wound up in it.
