We’re all still recovering from the mental week of theatre, film, music and workshops that was the first ever Tricycle Takeover Festival, which finished last week. What better way to round off an unbelievable festival than with one of our first Young Company bloggers, Yolanda, returning to give us her final outlook on the events…

I don’t have any children, and I’ve never been pregnant, but stepping off The Tricycle stage felt like I’d just given birth; that I had brought into the world this thing/being/creation that we have been working on and anticipating for months. It’s amazing because after a lot of blood, sweat and tears, I can definitely say hard work pays off. Our first night of The Kilburn Passion felt like a beautiful dream that I didn’t want to awake from. Everything seemed to go perfectly- there probably were minor mistakes, but I believe this helped us to solidify and depict the story that Suhayala wrote.

One of the best things about this experience has to be the cast.  It feels so weird to say, but I genuinely felt like I was on stage with a group of friends: telling a story, sharing a dance and other intimate moments from our characters’ journeys in front of an audience. As we did more shows, the FUN heightened and I felt like I could explore my character “Steph” more, and I discovered a variety of dimensions to her sassy yet emotional demeanour. I think that, as a whole, the cast all seemed to be exploring their characters during the shows and by the last show I felt that we had evolved as an ensemble and individuals, and really made The Kilburn Passion “HD”.

Being a part of The Kilburn Passion has been a remarkable experience, and I can’t wait to see where my Tricycle Young Company journey takes me.
