How do you react when someone tells you the end of the film or whodunnit in your favourite binged TV show? Dan and Jane went to the cinema for the first time in 18 months. They chose to see SOUND OF METAL (Dir Darius Marder) at the BFI. #SpoilerAlert! They give away parts of the story in the second half of the podcast, but begin by discussing what knowing the end of a story does to the telling of it and how our listening is shaped by what we anticipate the ending might be.

Making Theatre With Your Story
Dan Milne tells the fascinating origin story of Narativ. Twenty years ago Dan directed Paul Browde and Murray Nossel in a theatre piece called TWO MEN TALKING. The telling of their personal stories about growing up in South Africa took them to New York, London, South Africa, The Edinburgh Festival and beyond. That theatrical journey grew and gave birth to the storytelling and listening that is the Narativ Method used today. In a completion of the circle, many of the participants of Narativ workshops go on to develop their personal stories into theatre and other creative works. Look also at our ORIGINAL series where we talk to theatre makers and other creatives about how they use their personal stories in their work. This short series of podcasts will talk about some of those works.
