Festival City Podcast

Festival City is a podcast from Edinburgh, the world capital of theatre and comedy, and home to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe — the largest arts festival in the world. Hosted by theatre editor and critic Gareth K Vile, we welcome guest performers, directors and writers into The List's attic recording studio to talk theatre, comedy, dance and anything else that takes our fancy. As well as sharing the world of the Edinburgh Fringe with our far-flung listeners, we’ll be talking to arts programmers and curators around the world about their own festivals and institutions.



Festival City #8 | Are you surprised there's feminist theatre at the Fringe?

In episode of eight of Festival City our host Gareth K Vile is joined by Dr Carnesky to talk reclaiming menstruation and cabaret in Dr Carnesky's Incredible Bleeding Woman. Norah Sadava and Amy Nostbakken, the writers and actors behind the play Mouthpiece, discuss having the 'aha' feminist moment and emotional audience reactions to their personal feminist piece. Finally Danyah Miller, writer and solo-performer of Perfectly Imperfect Women, chats with Gareth about her relationship with her mum, being a storytelling trainer and her excellent flyering technique.
