A Kick Up The Arts is a brand-new podcast from Unity Theatre Liverpool, unpacking some of the big talking points setting the arts alight. Hosted by theatre producer Saphena Aziz, each episode will feature special guests discussing the topics nobody on Twitter is afraid to debate.
With award ceremonies regularly featuring ‘regional’ categories, and debate about ‘regional survival’ dominating industry press, our bumper pilot episode explores whether the word ‘regional’ is actually doing more harm than good – or do we still need to make it in London to make it? This month Saphena is joined by The Stage and Liverpool Echo journalist Catherine Jones and writer and performer Luke Barnes. (Recorded before COVID-19 outbreak)
