Podcast Episode 7 – Cyberpunk and Capitalism with Blue Monday

You can listen to Episode 7 here!

Join cabaret producers and podcast hosts Rosie Verbose & Ferrero Rochelle, as they chat with troupe member Blue Monday about creativity & mental health. A talented singer and musician, Blue shares some of the inspiration behind her digital soundscapes, as well as some of the research she’s amassed about how the need to make money affects our wellbeing. We also touch on themes such as lockdown (naturally), OCD, and dystopian fiction. It will make sense when you listen. Probably.

Blue Monday is a burlesque performer and musician. She is singing with her eyes closed, wearing a black strapless evening gown and elbow-length black satin gloves. Her hair is a brown-blonde and falls over her shoulders. She wears a red and black flower crown.

'Scars, Not Wounds' | Sanity, Sensitivity and Sobriety with Theatre Maker, GUY WOOLF The Invisible Cabaret Podcast: Mental Health & Creativity

This edition of our mental health and creativity flavoured podcast, we are joined by a stalwart friend of Invisible Cabaret: the multi-gifted, sickeningly talented Guy Woolf. Guy is an actor-director-composer-singer-advocate; you can see why he tends to go by 'theatre maker', just to save on hyphens. We chat with Guy about feeling his way through a career in the arts, checking and redressing privilege, and how his dog changed his life. Plus, Ferrero Rochelle and Rosie Verbose come unstuck whilst trying to make a furniture analogy, so look out for that. Check out Represent Theatre and watch this space! And don't miss the play Guy is directing with the Manchester Jewish Museum: full details on Guy's Twitter. Find out more about Guy via his website; read his bio on the Equity website. He is represented by United Agents. CW: alcohol abuse & addiction behaviours (18:30 – 21:50); brief mention of medical trauma (19:00 – 19:35). Some useful links for mental health issues mentioned in this episode: help with substance abuse here and here. *** What are you grateful for?
