Smoking Apples bring outdoor theatrical extravaganza, We Are More Alike to Folkestone

This outdoor theatrical spectacle with spellbinding puppetry has been created with the local community in mind. Since moving to Folkestone three years ago, the company’s creative team have been inspired by the town’s history of change and how it has always been a place that people have passed through, visited, moved to and moved from.

Audiences will be introduced to The Anthologists who have crash landed on the Kent coast, attempting to make sense of their unknown location. These explorers require the assistance of the audience to help them map out the past, present and the future. In doing so, everyone discovers that we are all more alike than we think we are. Exploring themes of migration and motion in human nature, We Are More Alike has allowed the company to understand the complexities and intricacies of their own hometown.

Smoking Apples deliver original puppetry and visual theatre, of the highest quality, to people all over the UK. The company don’t shy away from complex subject matter and use the current climate to form the basis of their work, with people and places at the heart of it. Smoking Apples first began a relationship with Folkestone in 2014 when they made and rehearsed their show, CELL. As part of the Creative Quarter’s drive to attract artists, the company rehearsed in the building that is now home to Bounce, at the bottom of the Creative Quarter, with the shop windows allowing people to watch their work.

Molly Freeman, co-artistic director comments, We are hugely excited to be bringing our unique style of puppetry and visual theatre to our doorstep and finally create a show in our hometown, alongside some brilliant local partners.
