“A totally unique immersive experience of the Czech Kindertransport. Beautifully imaginative puppetry, delightful music and verbatim stories are used cleverly to engage, educate and empower.” Everything Theatre
Escaping on a Kindertransport train, one small Czech-Jewish girl embarks on a mighty adventure.
Crossing between the past and present, Babi travels across Europe; from bon bons in Germany to the smell of the sea in Margate, she discovers how tiny acts of kindness can change the course of a person’s life.
Joyful, moving and poignant, Kinder features beautiful tabletop puppetry and cinematic shadow play, as Babi tries to assemble the parts of her broken identity, to find peace in her future.
Kinder is the newest show, from award-winning puppetry and visual theatre company Smoking Apples. Inviting you to take a seat inside an immersive set, the story unfolds through a series of playful hatches and openings.
Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and Enterprise Arts Trust.
Kinder is best suited to ages 11 – 16. The show contains some complex references to war and persecution, which younger audiences may find challenging. Kinder runs for up to an hour, without an interval and for the duration, the audience are seated inside an open-topped box structure. There is the option to leave and re-enter at any point.
