Theatre companies adapt their storytelling skills to reach audiences during pandemic lockdown.
In this podcast, the creative team behind Hidden Winter audio adventure, tell me about the joys and difficulties of adapting their theatre and storytelling skills to reach audiences during the pandemic’s lockdowns and restrictions.
It’s a process that’s presented lots of opportunities for learning new skills, and for doing theatre in a different way.
Hidden Winter follows 8-year-old Hiba, a mischievous cat, and a trail of winter clothes in a story celebrating the joys and difficulties of making friends in a new place.
My guests are:
Ruby Thompson, Artistic Director of The Herd, Hull, UK.
Rosie MacPherson, Artistic Director of Stand and Be Counted, Bradford, UK.
and Firas Chihi, narrator and translator of Hidden Winter, Bradford, UK.
