Filskit Theatre was founded in 2009 by Katy Costigan, Victoria Dyson and Sarah Gee. The ensemble were brought together over a shared interest in combining physical performance with multimedia technology to create magical, thought provoking theatre for young audiences.
Filskit Theatre exists to devise original, high quality work using our unique blend of multimedia technology, performance and live music. It is our mission to create exciting theatre that ignites the imaginations of children and their families.
At the heart of our work is our interest in technology and how it can be used to immerse young audiences in the world of a story. We work with projectors big and small to create a rich visual language that is engaging and accessible.
We feel passionately about the importance of giving each child the opportunity to experience high quality creative activity, whether it be in a theatre, school or community setting. We place our young audiences at the centre of our devising process and strive to explore themes and issues that are relevant to them.
As a touring company we have taken our unique blend of theatre to children and their families in arts venues, schools and festivals across London, South East and more recently further North including Manchester, Cheshire and Lancashire. Past productions include ‘Snow White’, ‘The Feather Catcher’ and more recently ‘Breaking The Ice’, a co-production with the Unicorn Theatre.
Alongside devising our own work, Filskit Theatre delivers creative workshops for a wide variety of audiences from nursery groups to Universities to professional development for teachers.
