Once again, the Traverse Theatre’s new online space, Traverse 3, will play host to a new venture. This time it takes the form of a new series of podcasts involving intimate and candid conversations between Traverse Co-Artistic Director Designate Debbie Hannan and a range theatre makers, creatives and cultural commentators from across the UK and beyond.
Taking the author Arundhati Roy’s statement that ‘the pandemic is a portal’, pertinent topics frominternationalism to disability rights, politics to music videos, censorship to signing BSL in a Scottish accent will be discussed and debated on the Podcast. Episodes available so far feature playwright Matilda Ibini, playwright and director Abhishek Majumdar and director Leonie Rae Gasson, with many more to come.
The US election will feature in a series of 3 concept podcasts featuring American playwright Sarah Kosar with Debbie that will also be broadcast throughout November.
Traverse Co-Artistic Director Designate Debbie Hannan said, “Speaking to artists and guests across every intersection of identity about the future has been illuminating – we have delved into difficult subjects, whilst carving out space to imagine what’s to come. These conversations are urgent, full of humanity and humour, and re-affirm how creativity and culture will be central to our new world.”
All episodes are available on Spotify, Acast and Apple Podcasts and new episodes that will include Bea Webster, Jess Brough and Harry Josephine Giles will be available on a regular basis.
Tickets to the Podcasts are free with age recommendation being 14+
