Across the Aisle is an award winning performing arts criticism podcast based in Melbourne. Monthly, hosts Carla and Philip each choose a show to attend and discuss them in depth. During the episodes “intermission” Carla and Phil talk about their favourite pop culture moments of the previous month and in “coming soon” they highlight upcoming shows, exhibitions, films, anything culture related for their audience.
Special Guest Lisa Dempster [Director of the Melbourne Writers Festival] joins Carla and Philip to discuss two productions: Lara Kramer's "Native Girl Syndrome" at Yirramboi - First Nations Arts Festival; and Katy Warner's "Spencer" produced by Lab Kelpie at Chapel off Chapel. We're thrilled to welcome Lisa to the studio for this special episode. Stick around for "coming soon" in which she gives some great tips about things to look out for in Melbourne.
