The solo performance BIG CRUNCH by the collective TILT is inspired by the societal and physical experiences of performer and choreographer Tamara Rettenmund, who perseveres in her dance and performance career despite living with Multiple Sclerosis and physical limitations.
In a fragile exoskeleton, she embodies the dance between vulnerability and resilience, with the exoskeleton undergoing a visual metamorphosis throughout the performance.
BIG CRUNCH invites the audience to deeply engage with the inner conflict between action and acceptance. The performance tells a poignant story of tenacity and the pursuit of self-determined transformation.
The collective TILT explores the performative possibilities of movement by employing body extensions. The name "TILT" symbolizes the concept of tilting, reaching a tipping point, and embracing imbalance, alluding to a critical exploration of bodily limitations and a shift in perspective. The collective aims to challenge societal paradigms regarding the body through a performative exploration of the "disable - enable - highly-able - game."
