About the podcast

Across this series, Gareth K Vile (Theatre Editor of The List Magazine, who also blogs wild critical theory here) chats to some of the amazing people who make, produce and contribute to our programme: from artists, curators and programmers, to community organisers and social clubs. We'll take a deep dive into exhibitions, gigs, performances and events - exploring the ideas and ethos that underpin our approach to programming and how you can get involved.
