Roots Replanted (2010)

		Production shot of the audience in

Our first touring site-specific piece.  After the success of Roots (2009), University of Bath’s ICIA  commissioned Kilter to adapt our site-specific show for touring. Roots became Roots Replanted!

 

At each new allotment and community farm we hosted a community tea party a week in advance of the first performance to help us adapt elements of the script to include local references. Scenes were re-located to fit each new geography and plants -from basil to cherry trees- were planted during every show across the region.

 

As usual we used recycled props, sets and costumes and all performances took place in the open air. Some scenes sheltered in our trademark shed, created entirely from recycled materials found on each site.

 

A wonderfully original piece. ‘Roots Replanted’ delivers a tough message: But it’s a delight to experience.

VENUE 4 stars ****, 2010.

 

The show’s real ambition is to plant the seed of a big idea… a delight to experience. VENUE

Estimates put the carbon emissions of London’s theatres alone at 50,000 tonnes a year. Few could compete with the model of sustainability offered by Kilter
