With Lockdown having made producing shows such a challenge, we’ve turned our attentions towards a new but related venture; we’ve started a podcast! The Invisible Cabaret Podcast is all about mental health and creativity, and how the two interlink. Hosted by Invisible Cabaret co-creators, Ferrero Rochelle and Rosie Verbose, we explore how the performing arts intersect with mental health issues, how we can explore questions of mental health in a meaningful way through art, and how our mental health can benefit from stretching our creativity. Plus a lot of giggles along the way!
We post on the second and fourth Friday of every month, meaning you can expect a new episode every other Friday!

Episode 5 of #InvisiblePodcast brings you an interview with London-based actor and our ‘resident clown’, Kate Mounce, AKA Mouncealot. Ferrero Rochelle and Rosie Verbose enjoy a fun and meaningful chat about the art of clowning, CPTSD and BPD, laughing at vs. laughing with, trauma and its effects on the body, navigating vulnerability in performance, and making work that comes from your deepest, raw self. All in about half an hour. Who says we’re not having a productive quarantine?
Ferrero Rochelle and Rosie Verbose chat to Invisible Cabaret troupe member, Bolly Ditz Dolly, about burlesque, Bollywood and bhajis. Ditz has performed her unique brand of fusion-inspired neo-burlesque all over the shop, from Bitten Peach, OwPHWOARd and I Need to Cher, to being crowned the winner of Burlesque Idol UK 2019. In this episode, we explore her journey to burlesque, her creative process, and her passion for cooking samosas from scratch.
Ferrero Rochelle and Rosie Verbose are joined by Invisible Cabaret troupe member, Stephanie De Whalley, AKA ‘Tootsie’, known for her fancy footwork and heartfelt performances. Join us as we chat about staying connected to creativity and your craft, even in the midst of lockdown burnout.
