In 2019, Ali Pretty, Kinetika’s Artistic Director worked in partnership with Tilbury on the Thames Trust to create the return of Tilbury Carnival.
Tilbury on the Thames Trust commissioned Kinetika to present The Children of Windrush, two new puppets for the Tilbury carnival , inspired by the story of the Empire Windrush’s landing at Tilbury in June 1948.
Year 7 students from the Gateway Academy were trained to operate the puppets by professional puppeteers Smoking Apples.
Students from South Essex College’s Purfleet campus BA (hons) Costume Construction course designed new Caribbean carnival-themed costumes for the two children characters.
