Behind the Curtains: Episode 3

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 Movement Directors Ingrid Mackinnon and Shelley Maxwell. Can everybody move? Can everybody catch a vibe? What can movement choreography add to storytelling? And why is it imperative we don’t get beaten down by this moment of uncertainty and operate ‘outside’ of it? Find out the answers to these questions and more in this week’s truly nourishing and hopeful conversation! Did someone say bashment break?


Episodes released fortnightly.
