The Arts industry has experienced massive upheaval in the months during the pandemic and no one knows this better than local independent theatre company, Citizen Theatre.
Having collectively seen the destruction of much of the local theatre industry, and the suffering and hardship artists, employees and the whole sector has undergone, they have taken to podcasting, as a means to stay connected and to begin to reflect and record on the times we are living in.
Hosted by Tomas Parrish (When The Light Leaves) and sound production/composition by Imogen Cygler (Citizen Theatre Resident Composer/MD), the Citizen Theatre Podcast unearths the beauty and creativity that lies behind all aspects of Citizen Theatre, its artists, and what moves them.
The podcast takes listeners 'behind the scenes' and delves into the creative practices of some of Citizen Theatre's regular collaborators.
This rare insight into the different areas of independent theatre making, from costume design to stage management, directing to writing and devising, performance and producing, takes listeners on a journey through the intricacies, joys and challenges of making critically acclaimed independent theatre and music theatre.
Reflecting beautifully on the upheaval and carnage in the first half of 2020, the podcast examines this period and continues to affirm the strength of their group and all we have to look forward to in 2021.
