Emily Lim revives Kilburn Passion 

ICT Associate Artist Emily Lim is reviving her production of Suhayla El-Bushra's The Kilburn Passion at the Tricycle Theatre next week. 

‘I’ve seen you. Putting up the shutters like you’re the only real person here, everyone else just robots you have to avoid, like in some computer game.’
A bus, a food van, a salon, a clothes shop.
Preoccupied with the daily grind, the residents of Kilburn High Road are busy. Too busy, in fact, to notice each other. But when a stranger arrives, their worlds begin to collide in a way that no one saw coming.
The production, which garnered rave reviews first time around, also features ICT's Angie Pena Arenas.

We are looking for our first ever Arts Administration Apprentice, a new full-time role for a young person aged 16-24.  

The role is a full time, paid role that includes paid training and a chance to launch your career in theatre.  It is organised and part-funded by the Islington Consortium Creative Employment Programme 2014 with generous support from the Sumners Foundation.


Our new employee will be a key member of the ICT team and will contribute to our work across a range of areas - including administration, marketing and project assistance.

It's an ideal role if you are looking to begin a career in the arts and particularly if you have an interest in producing, marketing, administration and project management.

Frying up new plays

We're half-way through the latest stage of our Chicken Shop Project, an exploration into the origins, importance and impact of the fried chicken shops that line our high streets.

The project, a collaborative effort involving five directors, four writers, a designer and more than 30 young people, will culminate in four sharings at Platform on Thursday and Friday (24/25 July - more information here).

It will be performed by a group of 13 young people, many of whom will be taking part in the first ever ICT project.
