Roots (2009)

Our site-specific allotment show, Roots, split the audience between attitudes to food in 1950 & 2050: everything from Smash to Nano.


The time is ripe for digging. As cheap imported fruit and veg rapidly become a thing of the past, Kilter invited people to grab a spade and elope to the allotment for a theatrical journey into the future of food.


Through an intimate tale of love and vegetables, Kilter took the audience down the bean-rows to explore food-security in a post-oil world. Friendly, welcoming characters tinkered with their seedlings whilst the audience up-turned a pot and took the weight off their feet.


It is rare to find a piece of live entertainment that is completely unique, but Kilter’s breathtaking piece of site-specific theatre is refreshingly original and a real slice of bohemian magic….This was such an intimate and organic piece of contemporary art that the audience left the allotments with an experience that will last long after the trees have shed their leaves. Highly recommended. Bath Chronicle


The performance succeeded admirably in the difficult task of being provocative without being preachy, witty and amusing without being flippant, and highly entertaining without once trivialising the underlying issues. I am pleased that B&NES Arts Development were able to support Kilter in creating Roots. This is precisely the kind of relevant, developmental creative work that public money should be spent upon.  Peter Salt, B&NES Arts Development
