As we round up Season 1 and embark on Season 2 of The Invisible Cabaret Podcast, we thought it was time to push the boat out and try something new… Thank you to everyone who joined us for our first ever LIVE podcast recording, which took place on our Instagram!

This year’s theme was ‘The Power of Small’, which Ferrero Rochelle and Rosie Verbose enjoyed exploring alongside interjections from our lovely Insta-audience.
The Invisible Cabaret Podcast about is all about mental health and creativity. This week, 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 benefits his mental health.
The Invisible Cabaret Podcast about mental health and creativity is delighted to start off the New Year by chatting to opera soprano, Bria Lovegrove (née Kelly). She shares her experience of how training as a professional classical singer affected her mental health, visiting areas such as OCD, perfectionism, self-medicating, the impact on her bank balance and the “grin and bear it” culture she experienced at conservatoire. Do the classical arts glamorise tragedy?
