“BELONGING(s) is a piece about journeys, but it’s also a journey of its own”
What’s On Stage (2016)

“A big, ambitious and clever promenade dance show”
Everything Theatre (2016)

BELONGING(s) is a site-specific promenade performance by Tilted Productions. It previewed in 2015 and toured nationally and internationally until 2017.

BELONGING(s) combines contemporary dance, physical theatre and an unusual use of objects. Tilted’s Artistic Director and choreographer, Maresa von Stockert created the piece in collaboration with company performers ranging in age from under 24 to over 60.

The outdoor promenade piece provokes thoughts on the notion of belonging, migration and the fleeting nature of what surrounds us. It invites the viewer to see the familiar in new ways, with local spaces being turned into illusionary worlds.

As audiences walk between the main scenes they will come across pop up performance vignettes involving members of the local community.

BELONGING(s) is in constant metamorphosis in response to its locations – the piece is ‘moulded to’ and integrates the architecture and landscape of each place we tour to.

“Community performers deepen the meaning of this promenade piece”
The Stage (2016)

“A delightful and enjoyable spectacle, beautifully choreographed and performed”
Eastern Daily Press (2016)

Running time is approximately 75 minutes. Age suitability: All
