‘Local’ is a podcast consisting of conversations with artists living on the Tasmanian West Coast, predominantly Queenstown, and artists’ in residence through both Q-Bank and The Unconformity. The primary focus of the podcast is to examine the role place has in the artists’ work and how it influences their practice. The podcast is a new and valuable narrative and voice emanating from the West Coast. Given that the West Coast is made up of a number of small communities connecting with audiences is extremely relevant here. The discussions critically explore the nature of art making in a provocative wilderness and industrial setting, humanising the experience of living and/or working ‘on the fringe’.

    A Treasure Chest of Taming: Braeden Oakley

    A Treasure Chest of Taming: Braeden Oakley

    Our shy risk taker, Braeden Oakley takes us through the process of his unbelievable creation.
    Braeden discusses creating a safe working environment, the beginnings of Stencilled Productions, firsts, paying your artists!, learning curves, letting go, having high expectations, collaborative hierarchies, creating equal opportunities, dealing with difficult themes, safe touch, establishing boundaries, the comfort of the audience, building relationships, not having favourite children, moving forward, personal histories, theatre lore, choice and love (especially for Katrina Green).
    *The theatre gods did not appear to be on the side of documentation in May. Throughout the Treasure Chest you’ll find disturbances in audio quality. Local’s genius of a producer Carter Pierce worked his magic, but perfection is impossible to achieve. You’ll also hear the voices of the cast and crew, but that’s all part of the fun.

    A Treasure Chest of Taming: Benedicta McGeown

    A Treasure Chest of Taming: Benedicta McGeown

    What an unbelievable pleasure it was to talk with Benedicta McGeown aka KATHERINE. The bio is true, Bene holds so much warmth and charm. This coupled with her deep knowledge of theatre made for a fascinating conversation.
    Benedicta discusses the many names of Katherine, being an Aries rising, the great McGeown/McGown controversy, having an intimidating aura, difficulty in understanding all of Katherine’s motivations, Katherine and Petruchio being absolute freaks, the “game”, flawed characters, the best films being based on books or Shakespeare, observant teachers being a blessing, scripts as skeletons, stage directions as suggestions not law, the importance of collaboration, the pull of the island and being cast well.

    A Treasure Chest of Taming: Peter Brown

    A Treasure Chest of Taming: Peter Brown

    The thoughtful and belly achingly funny Peter Brown aka GREMIO/ MERCHANT/ WIDOW has come to unpack what happens behind all of that humour and talent.
    Peter discusses experimentation explored through safety and trust, striving to create a safe space, danger, protection, finding peace, being an anchor, Gremio as a “nasty little pervert man”, hierarchy and punching down, playing a character honestly and thoughtfully, allowing a character to inhabit a person, what love is and looks like, victories in love, usefulness, Shakespeare’s trickery, explosions of power followed by shrinking, forgetting what an inside voice is and being rid of false anger.

    A Treasure Chest of Taming: Gabi Vavoulas

    A Treasure Chest of Taming: Gabi Vavoulas

    With hair that could rival even Bryan Stephens’, it’s Gabi Vavoulas talking all things LUCENTIO.
    Gabi discusses developing genuine chemistry with collaborators, the love of Lucentio, pure and questionable intentions, creating an open environment, taking care of each other inside and outside of the theatre, finding moments, playing a traditionally male character as a female, passion and intimacy, platonic courting, dropping into a naive frame of mind, questioning if good intentions are good, translating language, the nitty gritty, past experiences in gender bending, “dramatic tendencies”, repping Kingston High, the rigidity of identity, having a West-Coast connection and feeling fulfilled.

    A Treasure Chest of Taming: Paul McNally

    A Treasure Chest of Taming: Paul McNally

    Paul McNally has come to charm and teach us!
    Paul discusses knowing where he is, playing two, maybe two and a half characters, the cowardice of Hortensio, the ways in which lines suggest themselves, the difficulty of being in the moment, thinking and rethinking character choices, consistency ruining fun, playing the game, infatuation, creating an unknown backstory, playing a character pretending to be someone else, manipulation, asking the audience to actively listen, the serious as ludicrous, people experiencing us learning, “ghastly behaviour”, Shakespeare’s ambition, what is tragedy, what is comedy and being greedy for experience.

    A Treasure Chest of Taming: Chloe Harle

    A Treasure Chest of Taming: Chloe Harle

    Chole Harle is here to engage us with her sweet voice and deeply relatable insights.
    Chloe discusses her character and is quickly interrupted by the fury of Katherine during dress rehearsal, playing Bianca in a more likeable way, playing a gay character instead of a hetero one, creating a relatable character, people pleasing, societal expectations, violence and trust, checking in with your fellow actors to maintain safety, touch and movement, morality, making sense of good and bad humanity and having a “purely good thing”.
