Behind the Curtains: Episode 2

Behind the Curtains is a podcast spotlighting the off-stage, behind the curtains roles that are the backbone of theatre. How are writers, directors, sound designers, producers, production managers, movement directors and voice and dialect coaches weathering the storms of uncertainty? How did they get to where they are now? What pearls of wisdom do they have for their peers in the industry and those still looking to enter it? What’s race got to do with it? And how do we stay inspired and motivated through the thick and through the thin?


In this episode, hosts Siana & Christina chat to Cultural Producer Tobi Kyeremateng and Birmingham Rep’s Associate Director Madeleine Kludje about their career journeys, working in and outside of the London Bubble and the creative scene in Birmingham, as well as the importance of internships, creating with friends, and DIY-ing it.

Episodes released fortnightly.
