“This is a time of a lot of anger, pain and anxiety. But this time will pass and we will gather again to sing, dance and most importantly to heal. We need to listen to one another and be better. We’ve missed our audiences, supporters, our neighbours and local businesses, the many young people who come through our building everyday and inspire us, the staff who care so much and our community of actors, playwrights, creatives, musicians, backstage technicians and all the people that create the work you see on stage. The building is a shell without the energy and passion of all who come through our doors.” – Indhu Rubasingham, Artistic Director
It’s been a tough time for so many people. Many things are being questioned and things we took for granted are now absent. The world is deeply uncertain place.
It’s important that people stay safe and well, but it’s even more crucial that we look out for each other in our isolation.
Since our theatre closed to the public in March, we’ve realised -even more – how important our communities are.
And we miss you.
We’ve missed our audiences, supporters, our neighbours and local businesses, the many young people who come through our building every day and inspire us, the staff who care so much, and our community of actors, playwrights, creatives, musicians, backstage technicians and all the people that create the work you see on stage. The building is a shell without the energy and passion of all who come through our doors.
Over these past months, we’ve looked for every possible way to make a difference to our communities. We can’t wait until we can be together again in person, to share our stories of different worlds, different people, and different perspectives – so that we can discover more what connects us, rather than what divides us.
This is a time of a lot of anger, pain and anxiety. But this time will pass and we will gather again to sing, dance and – most importantly – to heal. We need to listen to one another and be better.
I’ve been deeply reminded of the power of theatre and the necessity of narratives to make sense of the world we find ourselves in. I’ve been reminded of the power of theatre in bringing people together to share an experience that has the possibility to transform.
We cannot exist without you.
Together we can get through this. We are the Kiln Community. Join us.
“Building the show across the last few weeks was so creatively fulfilling. It was a huge challenge and gave me such a wonderful outlet during this surreal time. Absolutely loved doing the show, and the support network we had with each other during it.” – Young Company participant of our digital production ‘Dear Future Generations’
