Tilted Productions / Maresa von Stockert

BELONGING(s), is a beautiful site-sensitive promenade that subtly provokes thoughts on migration, the notion of belonging and the fleeting nature of what surrounds us. Different in each place and responding to its environment, the piece turns local spaces into illusionary worlds.

BELONGING(s) unfolds over three main scenes, each in a different location. En route between the scenes audiences come across pop up performance vignettes and installations created with, and performed by local community participants.

If desired a version with reduced or no community engagement/alternative options can be offered to international partners.


Created by Maresa von Stockert in collaboration with an inter-generational cast of 8 performers, both pieces merge contemporary dance, physical theatre and an integral use of objects.




  • ‘Maresa von Stockert has a choreographic sensibility that’s all her own, a mix of intellectual and sensory scrupulousness that makes her work strikingly original.’

    The Guardian (on Masquerade)

  • ‘What amazes as always is the stunning visual effect of von Stockert and her cast’s wit and imagination…it makes audiences think.’

    Tilted Productions creates playful and challenging cross art form collaborations merging contemporary dance, physical theatre, sound and visual art. Tilted’s Artistic Director and Crying Out Loud Associate Artist, Maresa von Stockert, creates illusionary worlds that are inspired by social, environmental and political observations and questions around our sense of place and identity. Her work re-imagines the familiar to open up different perspectives on the world we live in.

    It features a constantly evolving interest in the physical dialogue between human bodies – of all forms and ages – and their surroundings. Objects and places (architecture and landscapes) are integral as movement catalysts and metaphors in her pieces.
