Solidarity & Support

“No one can possibly know what is about to happen: it is happening, each time, for the first time, for the only time.” James Baldwin

In its 40 years of existence, our theatre has survived many difficult times – including recessions, riots, funding cuts, and fire. We are still standing today because of the tenacity, determination and generosity of our audiences, local community and supporters.  Today, we – along with all other arts venues – have another challenge on our hands, one which not only jeopardises the future of our building, but one that could affect our beloved industry for some time to come.  This affects so many many people who come together to create work, from actors, to the backstage crew to the set builders and the many supply companies that make our ecology complex, interdependent and passionate.

Closing our theatre temporarily has been an incredibly sad decision and we can’t wait until the day we can open our doors again.

We are deeply proud of Pass Over, A Museum in Baghdad and The Glee Club and all the wonderful people who contributed to their excellence. We are gutted that our audiences are not going to have the chance to see these plays which speak to a need to recognise our shared humanity, something that sits right at the heart of Kiln Theatre’s mission.

We have also taken the decision to postpone our next three productions: Heart, The Wife of Willesden and NW Trilogy. We will let you know when these projects are rescheduled.

We are proud to be continuing our Creative Engagement work with young people and we are thinking as creatively as possible about what we can do to support our local communities as well as the wider theatre industry. We will update you on these plans as soon as we are able.

We know that COVID-19 (coronavirus) is having an unfolding impact on many people’s health, wellbeing and livelihoods, and that we are all facing different circumstances. We want everyone to stay safe and well until the day we can welcome you all back through our doors.

In the meantime: if you are able to support us in this unprecedented situation, please consider making a donation to Kiln Theatre. Any gift, of any size, will be a huge help in ensuring that we can be here to welcome you on the other side of this pandemic.

You could also consider setting up a monthly donation to us. This form of regular support enables us to plan ahead – which, in these uncertain times, is a rare and precious thing. If you are able to help us financially, please scroll to the bottom of this page. Thank you to everyone who has made a donation to Kiln so far – this means so much.

We would also like to thank you for your emails and messages, which are deeply appreciated by all of us here.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to our theatre as soon as possible.

Thank you so much – from the bottom of our hearts – for your solidarity and support.

Messages from Indhu, Daisy and the Kiln Theatre team

26 September 2020

We wanted to wrap up September by sharing some good news. From launching a series of short films with new production company Bennu Creative House, to seeing our first Production Arts student start her fully-funded scholarship, we’re thrilled to continue our work with young, exciting artists and keep the spirit of Kiln Theatre alive whilst we plan our reopening.

Movement director of HEART Shelley Maxwell has joined forces with Celise Hicks, Michelle McGivern and Clement Ishmael to create Bennu Creative House, a new multimedia production company dedicated to nurturing artists and projects with a core vision of diversity, inclusivity and freedom.

Click here to watch Shelley talk to our Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham about this exciting venture.

Their debut project PIVOT has been produced to help support our reopening.

PIVOT plunges us into a simple tale of four actors, a director and the disruptive consequences that occur within their world of online rehearsals. Culminating in a series of hilarious events that can only lead to a flawed presentation for the producers of their production.

The first episode is now available to view here. New episodes will be released every couple of days.

 

PRODUCTION ARTS: ACT ONE BEGINNERS

We are thrilled that Mikayla Moxam, a participant of our Production Arts course ‘Act One Beginners’, has been awarded a full, 2-year scholarship at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts. She began studying Scenic Art and Prop Making this week.

Best of luck Mikayla, we are very proud!

Kiln Theatre’s 2019 Production Arts course covered basics in Lighting, Sound and Stage Management and provided opportunities to young people aged 16-25, from less represented backgrounds, to start a backstage career. Participants took part in a range of workshops alongside attending London-based theatre performances. Other participants received summer placements in last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival and White Light Ltd.

 

BLACK BRITISH THEATRE AWARDS

Congratulations to all the Black British Theatre Awards nominees, including Lanre Malaolu (Best Choreographer) and Paapa Essiedu (Best Male Actor in a Play) for their work on PASS OVER.

The awards ceremony will be available on the free-to-view Sky Arts channel in late October.

 

SOLIDARITY & SUPPORT

Thank you – from the bottom of our hearts – to all our generous donors for their support.

We would love to be able to tell you about opportunities to support us in future, but your current contact preferences mean we’re unable to do so.

You can update your contact preferences in your online account here or by emailing our Fundraising Team at give@kilntheatre.com.

We’ll be in touch again soon.

We hope you are well and staying safe,

Kiln Theatre

4 September 2020

We cannot believe it has been two years since we opened our brand new auditorium to the world; we also never expected that we would need to plan another re-opening of the building so soon! We’re finalising plans for the autumn which we will tell you about soon, but in the meantime, we wanted to share with you some of the brilliant, powerful work our young theatremakers have created over the summer.

 

DEAR FUTURE GENERATIONS

AN ORIGINAL FILM WRITTEN & PERFORMED BY OUR 16-18 YOUNG COMPANY

A poem, a manifesto, a dream of the future, Dear Future Generations is all about the mad world we’re in and how to reset the rules.

From the Martin Luther Kings to the fiercest drag queens, the company take this chance to investigate what came before, and what change they want to see in the future.

We’re excited to bring you joyful, electric performances from the next generation of game-changers.

THE AGENCY

As part of Brent 2020, London Borough of Culture, a Mayor of London initiative, Kiln Theatre’s The Agency programme supports young entrepreneurs between 15-25 years old to develop ideas for social change in their area.

Four successful ideas have been chosen by an expert panel and will continue to be developed over the next few weeks. The ideas we’re supporting include a podcast telling the story of young care leavers, an archiving project documenting the regeneration of Harlesden, an opportunity for young people to learn how to create a film and a project for young girls to provide education around consent and sexual assault.

More information about each individual project will be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, click here for more information and to read The Agency blog.

 

HONEYMOON

In July our 19-25 Young Company staged Kiln’s first ever live digital performance to great acclaim.

Honeymoon explored the absurdity, difficulty and beauty of our current existence and was the result of these young people’s extraordinary innovation and hard work.

SOLIDARITY & SUPPORT

This work could not have happened without the help of all our generous donors. Thank you to all those who have supported us with a donation in recent months.

Will you consider making a donation today to help us as we look forward to reopening our building and continuing this work with our community?

Give Now

Every donation helps and we look forward to sharing more reopening news soon

THANK YOU!

A huge thank you and massive congratulations to our wonderful supporter Nicola Horton. Nicola has recently undertaken the massive feat of virtually rowing the tidal Thames. Not only did she conquer the distance of three half marathons and one full marathon on her rowing machine, she raised £645 in the process and will also receive match funding from her employer!

‘I am a proud supporter of Kiln Theatre and the work it does in my local community, and I want to see exciting productions there again as soon as possible.’

Well done Nicola! There is still time to sponsor her so do check out Nicola’s JustGiving page here.

If you have any ideas to help raise money for Kiln yourself, then do get in touch with our Fundraising Team at give@kilntheatre.com. They’d love to hear from you and would be more than happy to support your efforts!

 

CUSTODIANS FOR COVID

There are still a few prints available of the beautiful photo of our empty auditorium featuring our Executive Director, Daisy. Joanna Vestey’s Custodians for Covid initiative is a collection of 20 photographs, each featuring an affected London theatre, portraying the custodian who is charged with its care during closure. Check out the Kiln photo here).

Prints are £200 each and of that £155 will come directly to us at Kiln.

We’ll be in touch again soon.

We hope you are well and staying safe,

Kiln Theatre

25 July 2020

We hope that you are keeping healthy and staying safe.

Community has been at the heart of our building throughout its 90-year history.

It started with the Ancient Order of Foresters, who built our home on Kilburn High Road in 1929 as place for communities to meet and be entertained. Our building was an air raid shelter and food distribution point during the Second World War and, since the 1980s, has been a powerhouse of political theatre as well as a place for young people’s voices to be heard.

Our 2019 80-strong community play, THE SEVEN AGES OF PATIENCE by Chinonyerem Odimba, was a love letter to the many communities and events that shaped our borough across the 20th century.

We can’t return as a producing theatre yet, but we want to be open as a civic space again as soon as it is safe and financially viable to do so.

Today our beloved Brent is suffering. The borough has the highest mortality rate from COVID-19 in the UK. This stark reality has made us even more determined to reopen and help people come together.

We are currently applying for funding for community projects that will support different generations from our local area, with plans to be announced soon. And we will spend the rest of the summer working to make our building safe to welcome the public back this autumn.

Will you help us with a donation this summer as we prepare to reopen our doors to our local community?

Give Now

We look forward to keeping you updated on our news. And thank you to everyone who has sent messages of support – we love hearing from you.

With best wishes,

Indhu Rubasingham (Artistic Director, Kiln Theatre)

11 July 2020

We hope that all is well with you. Since we last wrote, lockdown restrictions in the UK have started to ease and we are keeping a close eye on what this means for theatres over the coming weeks and months.

In fact, it has been a week of big announcements for us and for many other arts venues. We are relieved to have been successful in our application for emergency support from Arts Council England, which we submitted six weeks ago. This crucial grant will help to secure our financial position until the autumn. We continue to fundraise to ensure we can cover our core costs for the remainder of 2020 and we will keep you updated with news of our reopening as plans develop.

You may have also heard the UK Government announce this week the very welcome news of a £1.57 billion investment package for the UK arts and culture industry. We are looking forward to understanding the detail behind the announcement and how Kiln Theatre might be supported.

In the meantime, here is some news from us.

13 June 2020

We had plans to update you on various pieces of news from Kiln Theatre, but to do this today doesn’t feel right. Instead, we want to share the statement that we made last week:

To all the young people we are working with at the moment and to those we have not yet met…

What we are seeing happening in the USA is much nearer home than many would like to believe. What is starkly being shown is the systemic racism in our societies that has existed and caused extreme harm for centuries. Words and comfort are hard to find and offer. But it is our responsibility to take this moment to galvanise, to push forward and make this world better for you to take over, to stand up for you and to stand with you.

What we can do at Kiln Theatre is to commit even more fervently to our values and mission; to tell the stories of the many diverse communities that we live amongst here in Brent, to listen to you, to provide as many opportunities as we can for you to speak and to make a theatre for all, where everyone is entitled.

Indhu (Artistic Director), Daisy (Executive Director) and the Kiln Theatre Team

16 May 2020

How are you? We are living in confusing times and I hope at the very least that this message finds you safe and healthy.

I hoped that by now we would be announcing the reopening date of our theatre. Instead, we all find ourselves watching, waiting and hoping for “normal” life to resume, but not knowing exactly when or how that will be.

We are all learning to live with uncertainty. At Kiln Theatre, we are trying to control the elements that we can. We are still making full use of the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, furloughing the majority of our colleagues, and reducing costs wherever possible.

With our building closed for the immediate future and no sign of theatre productions just yet, we are thinking about the role that we can still play as a civic space within our local communities. We are researching, listening and discussing and will have more news to share soon.

In the meantime, I’m very pleased to report that our work with young people from across North-West London continues. This month our brilliant Creative Engagement practitioners moved all their workshops online. Our projects will bring continuity and a safe space for self-expression for young people aged between 8-25 years old, who may be feeling isolated, concerned or simply missing vital social contact. Our work with The Agency across Brent also continues, click here to find out more about this exciting social change project.

Even though we’re in tough times, I’m convinced that all the planning and soul-searching will make us stronger and better. I believe our theatre will reopen with renewed purpose, determined to be an essential part of society’s recovery.

This pandemic not only has an immediate physical health impact but also longer-term mental health implications too. We will need stories, arts and community more than ever to help us make sense of what has happened.

We’ll write again soon. Until then, please stay safe.

18 April 2020

Our doors may be closed, but our minds and hearts certainly aren’t!

We are busy creating new digital content, setting up online workshops and engaging with our community young and old. We plan to send regular e-updates to keep you updated on our news and to tell you more about how you can get involved.

We hope that you will enjoy these updates from a “Virtual Kiln” until we can all meet in person again.

We launched a fundraising appeal three weeks ago, asking our theatre-goers to make a donation as we navigate these uncertain waters. This support ensures we can cover essential costs – such as staff salaries, utility bills and security – whilst our building is closed.

Generous theatre-goers have since given over £25,000 to Kiln Theatre and we’ve been humbled by this generosity during a time of need for so many.

Instead of claiming a refund, hundreds more people have donated the price of their tickets for Pass Over and A Museum of Baghdad, shows we were so sad to have to cancel. If you are one of these people: thank you.

We can’t wait to welcome you back through our Kilburn High Road doors. Until then, stay safe and well.

4 April 2020

First things first, I hope you and those closest to you are well and adapting to the strange reality we all find ourselves in.

I am writing to ask if you would make a donation to Kiln Theatre – and to explain why.

March

Our theatre – along with hundreds of others – has had to close to the public. While necessary in this crisis, it has been traumatic: theatres are places for communities of all backgrounds and ages to come together and for experiences to be shared. Having to enforce exactly the opposite during this global pandemic has been disorientating and we are so sad that our Kilburn High Road doors cannot remain open to welcome both our local community and visitors from further afield during this troubling time.

April

In a few days time, Arts Council England will tell us more about their commitment to support the creative industries through this crisis. We are also having conversations with other grant-giving organisations about emergency funding they might be able to give us – but nothing is certain at this stage.

TODAY

This brings me to right now. I am appealing to you to help us today.

Our costs are immediate – and they are scary. We have spent the days since closing our doors painstakingly reviewing all our outgoings and reducing them wherever possible. We have used the lifeline of the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme to furlough a significant portion of our staff from this week. This includes members of our full-time team as well as the casual staff who do such an amazing job welcoming everyone to our beautiful building.

Despite this we have continuing overheads that incur daily expenditure – with no corresponding income from ticket sales. And this is why we are asking for your help.

Your donation will support us as we work to ensure the future of our theatre.

We cannot provide a front-line response to COVID-19, but when the crisis has passed, we – and all theatres – will have a vital role to play.

Will you help the Kiln Team get through this crisis?

In its 40 years of existence, our theatre has survived many difficult times including recessions, riots, funding cuts, and fire. We are still standing today because of the tenacity, determination and generosity of our audiences, community and supporters.  Today, we have another challenge on our hands, one which not only jeopardises the future of our building, but one that could affect our beloved industry for generations to come.

“No one can possibly know what is about to happen: it is happening, each time, for the first time, for the only time.” James Baldwin

We are all aware that we are in uncharted waters. Closing our theatre temporarily has been an incredibly sad decision and we are now working through all that this entails.

We are deeply proud of Pass Over, and all the wonderful people who contributed to its excellence. We are gutted that audiences are not going to have the chance to see Antoinette Nwandu’s urgent play, which speaks to a need to not look away and instead to recognise our shared humanity, something that sits right at the heart of Kiln Theatre’s mission.

In the weeks and months ahead, our team will think as creatively as possible about what we can do to continue our Creative Engagement work, and to support our local communities as well as the wider theatre industry. We will update you on our plans as soon as we are able.

We appreciate that Covid-19 (coronavirus) is having an unfolding impact on many people’s health, wellbeing and livelihoods. And that everyone is facing different circumstances. That said, if you are able to support us in this unprecedented situation, any donation, of whatever size, will be a huge help.  You could also consider setting up a monthly donation to us.
