How would you describe your show in one sentence?
An exploration of the experiences of children in War and the playful curiosity they retain despite living in painful circumstances.
Is this your first visit to Sprint, if so what interesting tales have you been told about what to expect?
Yes! We’re aware that the Sprint Festival offers a fabulously unique and unconventional programme of new work, and we can’t wait to be a part of it.
How has the show developed on the way to Camden?
We’ve dug deeper into our research, making way for new ideas while tightening original moments. Some teddy bears may have been harmed in the process…
How have you been preparing for Sprint?
Playing games, drinking coffee and engaging with other companies/organisations who inspire us on Twitter and spreading the word about #Sprint16.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
Kick The Tin hops between the good times, and the bad. Just as children do – we hope our audience will be on the verge of tears and the brink of laughter.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Sprint (apart from your own!)?
The Seagull, Or Why Masha Always Wears Black by This is not a test. We’re very excited to hear more from vodka drinking Masha.
If your show was an item being sold on Camden Market, what would it be?
A colourful box of dominoes…
Laika Theatre will be performing Kick The Tin at Sprint Festival on 14 March 2016
