Oida Theatre presents

As part of GENFest 2024...

‘Baggage Reclaim’ (working title) is a piece of new-writing produced by Oida! Theatre which explores themes of identity, perception, and mankind’s innate curiosity, often leading them on a search for meaning and understanding. The piece follows three baggage reclaim workers as they appear to make a game out of rummaging through forgotten luggage and imagining stories for the passengers who left it behind.

Oida! Theatre encourages people from all walks of life to attend our shows. Due to our own neurodivergence, we keep the lighting on the darker side and we try to keep loud noises to a minimum. However, we welcome audience members bringing in sensory aids as needed (ie. ear defenders, stim toys etc). As some of our plays have audience interaction, we ask those attending the show who do not wish to engage with us to cross their arms across their chests to demonstrate to us that they are uncomfortable with this.

Please note whilst everything at GENFest is FREE, we do ask that you book as there is limited capacity.

This event is part of

GENFest 2024: Baggage Reclaim

Sat 29 June


ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
