Time To Talk Day – Recorded Live! (S1:E18)

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!

Guy Woolf, Theatre Maker, on The Invisible Cabaret Podcast (S1:E17)

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.

Do the classical arts glamorise tragedy?
