Tilted's 2013 cross artform collaboration for the outdoors combines contemporary circus, dance and physical theatre.
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.
Fragile was on an extensive national and international tour from May until September 2013:
32 performances in 3 different countries (UK, France and Denmark) with audiences reaching altogether about 18 000 people!
In addition to Tilted Productions’ support from Arts Council, England, this project is commissioned by PASS – Circus Channel, an European network between UK and France, with La Brèche, Pôle National des Arts du Cirque de Base-Normandie (Cherbourg – Octeville) and SeaChange Arts, an Arts Development and Promotion Agency (Great Yarmouth) acting as co-producers together with Atelier 231, Centre National des Arts de la Rue and Viva Cité Festival (Sotteville-les-Rouen).
This performance has received a Creation aid by the IN SITU network, in the frame of the META project. This project has been funded with support from the European Commission (DGEAC – Culture programme)
It is supported by Crying Out Loud (London) where Maresa is currently Associate Artist.
