Episode 1 of Invisible Cabaret Podcast…

The first episode of the Invisible Cabaret Podcast is now live!


You can also listen on Soundcloud (there might be a couple of other musical goodies on there too…) or get the video version on YouTube, stick us in a corner somewhere and pretend we’re all hanging out (because that’s pretty much life right now, isn’t it?)

Boys Don’t Cry | Locking Down and Opening Up with Richard 'The Burly Photographer’ McKenzie The Invisible Cabaret Podcast: Mental Health & Creativity

Invisible Cabaret charters new waters this week, as we venture outside the troupe to talk about creativity and mental health with artists in other fields. And after guesting on his podcast earlier on in lockdown, how could they not put Richard McKenzie, AKA The Burly Photographer, top of the priority list! Richard is a fantastic live-event photographer, whose work has earned him international renown in the burlesque community. He joins hosts Ferrero Rochelle and Rosie Verbose to talk about how to keep motivated and inspired as a creative – even in an international crisis – as well as sharing his fascinating perspective on men's mental health and how cabaret might begin to bridge that gap. You can find Richard on Facebook as @digitalmck and on Instagram as @theburlyphotographer. CW – 15:23 brief mention of suicide. Some useful links for Men's Mental Health: CALM (for men aged 16-35); Dudes 'N' Dogs community group. *** What are you grateful for atm?

  1. Really interesting and exciting stuff your planning in these dark days . I work as a peer mentor for a mental health charity and we have done a Zoom drop in which worked fairly well . Good luck and stay safe looking forward to more pod casts
