Podcast Episode 9 – Burlesque Queen and Drag King, Petit Pois

You can listen to Episode 9 here!

What a treat to talk to Petit Pois, a celebrated burlesque artiste and drag performer who just happens to be one of the longest-running members of our troupe! Hosts Ferrero Rochelle & Rosie Verbose talk to Shayla about her love of performing, creating characters and removing layers (in all senses).

Petit Pois is a burlesque performer. She is kneeling on the floor, holding a white bed sheet, all bathed in pink light. Her hair is brown and curled and falls past her shoulders. She is looking upwards. She wears nude-coloured lingerie with full-length nude stockings and white elbow-length gloves. Her left forearm is covered by the sheet, which covers the floor around her.

You can find Petit Pois via her website, on Facebook and on Instagram as @petitpoisburlesque.

'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?
