Podcast SHOW OFF released episode #7 "Contactless Communities"

  | ©

The latest episode of podcast SHOW OFF is out now.


On a global scale, the pandemic had a disastrous impact on social bonds and communities. New social distancing measures and public health provisions erected new barriers between artists and their audiences. The contactless reality of the pandemic highlighted many inequalities already present within the society, exposed vulnerable working and economic conditions and aggravated associated mental health issues, with performing artists often bearing the brunt. This podcasts is a reflection of discussion of four theatre practitioners and researchers about how performing arts can change and rework some of its practices for a better, more empathic, and sustainable practice.
