Maresa von Stockert will work in close collaboration with seven outstanding performers: Lucas Bergandi (tight wire; from CNAC); Stephanie McMann & Beth Powlesland (amongst many other projects featured in Tilted’s SEASAW); Laura Smith & Mark Pieklo (trampoline; previously with Cirque Plume) and David Vossen (clown & dancer; recently in Mor Shani’s Flatland; Pink Umbrella Company).
The set has been created in collaboration with French scenographer Fabrice Deperrois of Les Plastiqueurs and Tilted’s production manager Jeremy Cox with structural engineering by Jason Tucker of Maltbury Staging.
The sound design containing originally composed as well as existing pieces of music is by Oliver Thomas.


A tightwire artist, two dancers, a trampoline duo and a dancing clown meet on an architectural set that depicts a derelict building’s rooftop.

While delicate relationships tenderly and brutally entwine, a strange transformation happens to the roof itself enhancing the sense of a warped reality and other worldliness unfolding.
