Tilted Productions creates playful, yet challenging cross art form collaborations, rooted in the world of contemporary dance. The company’s Artistic Director, Maresa von Stockert, creates illusionary worlds that are inspired by social, environmental and political observations. Her work focuses on questions around our sense of place and identity; why and how we interact with others and our environment.
Tilted Productions combines its longstanding expertise in indoor theatre with its more recent interest in making site-responsive, outdoor work in public spaces. Whether on stage, screen or in the public realm, our work re-imagines the familiar and opens up different perspectives on the world we live in.
Tilted Productions is a touring performing arts company based at the Jerwood DanceHouse in Ipswich. Our work combines contemporary dance, physical theatre, sound and visual art.
The company’s mid-scale, cross art form productions tour to venues, as well as festivals nationally and internationally. Tilted Productions is a National Portfolio Organisation funded by Arts Council England and supported by Ipswich Borough Council. The company’s work is supported by many regional and national organisations and, in the last 3 years, by various European networks such as ZEPA, PASS and IN SITU.
Tilted Production’s founder, Maresa von Stockert has produced a significant body of work for the company, as well as commissions for other internationally acclaimed organisations. Since 2002, she has created many pieces for the stage (most recently Masquerade) and site-specific works (most notably Grim(m) Desires, which had a 4 week sell out run at Wapping Power Station, London). Since 2011, Maresa’s focus has been on outdoor work (for example SEASAW), exploring the different possibilities of art in public spaces.
Maresa has received wide recognition for her work, including a Time Out Live Award for Outstanding Choreography; a Jerwood Choreography Award and a Bonnie Bird Choreography Award.
Maresa has been Associate Artist at many theatres and organisations, including The Place, London; DanceEast, Ipswich and the Southbank Centre, London. She is currently Associate Artist with Crying Out Loud, London.
