The Kammioneers (2011)
From an unfixed point in the distant future, the Kammioneers have dragged their cabinet of curiosities. Constantly on the look out to increase their intriguing collection of artefacts ‘mined’ from the drowned coastal cities, this inquisitive and eye-catching pair barter and trade with everyday items that betray the fascinating history of people and planet before the great catalysing catastophes of the 21st century.
A walkabout street-theatre piece at home in any setting. The characters continue their voyage of discovery, spreading an important environmental frame of mind, wherever they land. The piece makes a very strong arresting image in constant flow and it provides a simple but mind-altering message about the future… and by implication the present and the role we each have in it.
‘The Kamionneers’ is made in conjunction with the Future Museum – a project developed by artist and kamioneer, Jethro Brice. As with all Kilter’s work the salvaged props and recycled sets he has made blend with engaging ‘point-blank’ characters as Kilter’s trade-mark emblem of quality craftsmanship and sustainability.
The development of The Kamionneers was made possible by a commission from Bath Fringe Festival and we are very grateful to them!
