Presented by Tilted Productions, and performed on Greenham Business Park, Newbury, and 101 Outdoor Arts Creation Space, BELONGING(s) will use physical theatre, contemporary dance and sound to provoke thoughts on migration, the notion of belonging and the fleeting nature of what surrounds us.
As a site-responsive performance, the show responds to its environment, making the piece different in every location the company visit. For the Newbury shows on Saturday 17 June, Tilted will invite viewers to walk around the performance spaces at Greenham Business Park and see familiar sites in new ways as the performers turn them into clever, illusionary worlds. As audiences move between the main scenes they will also come across pop up performance vignettes involving members of the local community.
Tilted Productions create playful yet challenging cross art-form collaborations rooted in the world of contemporary dance. Led by Artistic Director and choreographer Maresa von Stockert, the company’s work is often inspired by social, environmental and political observations and asks questions around our sense of place and identity.
Maresa regularly works with a team of collaborators, including contemporary dance and circus artists, actors, designers and composers, bringing together people from a broad range of ages and challenging art form boundaries. BELONGING(s) has been created using an inter-generational cast of eight performers whose ages range from 24 to 60+ years old, as well as members of Newbury’s local community.
BELONGING(s) will take place on Saturday 17 June, 4pm and 7.30pm at on Greenham Business Park, Newbury.This event is free to attend, but pre-booking is required. Attendees must be prepared to walk and stand throughout the performance, and as much of the show will be out of doors, audiences are advised to wear weather appropriate clothes.
