    Rat Chats - Performance as Power: Language, Identity, and Representation

    Rat Chats - Performance as Power: Language, Identity, and Representation

    Welcome to Rat Chats, where we have a chill convo with the artists behind upcoming performing arts works. Today we sit down with Jess Karamjeet (Redundant), Jazmine Rose Phillips (Their Feet Did Not Touch The Ground), and Olivia Hall & Carrie Rudzinski (The Bitching Hour). With performances that are centred on representing complex identities and stories, we have an invigorating chat about the ethics of representation, the rise of performance poetry, and creating works that get under your skin. 
    This podcast is hosted by Jennifer Cheuk (Rat World Magazine), with support from Basement Theatre, and is recorded at MoveSpace.

    Rat Chats - Don’t Be Afraid To Sit In The Front Row: Improv, Interactive Theatre, and Comedy

    Rat Chats - Don’t Be Afraid To Sit In The Front Row: Improv, Interactive Theatre, and Comedy

    Welcome to the first episode of Rat Chats, where we have a chill convo with the artists behind upcoming performing arts works.

    Today we sit down with Rhiannon McCall (The Good, The Bad, and The Completely Made Up), Jane Wills (Castaway Airlines), and Tamara Gussy (Tea for Two World Tour), who are all working on improvised and interactive performances - ranging from a one-woman Western, to an interactive dating experience, to an immersive airline flight! We chat about creative processes, workshopping improv theatre, and I get to ask something I’ve always wondered: What do you do when no one laughs in a comedy show?

    Once in a Black Moon: A Critical Conversation curated by Black Creatives Aotearoa

    Once in a Black Moon: A Critical Conversation curated by Black Creatives Aotearoa

    Last year, we were so stoked to have Silo Theatre at Basement Theatre presenting seven methods of killing kylie jenner by Jasmine Lee-Jones. They partnered up with Black Creatives Aotearoa, who happened to be Basement's Company in Residence, and together they put on a panel discussion one Sunday before the performance. It was a meeting of powerful hearts and minds and it was truly a historic piece of theatre. - Nisha Madhan, Basement's programmer
