Weâ€™re slap bang in the middle of panto season, so this month The Global Lab becomes The Global Stage, looking at the connections between our usual themes of cities, space and global networks and the world of the theatre.
Treading the boards with us in this episode, we have playwright and academic, Dan Rebellato, telling us how the rising tide of globalisation has affected the theatre, live artist Anna Brownsted, who talks to Hannah Sender about her immersive site-specific performances, and theatre producer and broadcaster Nick Hennegan, who invites us to tour the historic drinking establishments of Bloomsbury and Soho on the London Literary Pub Crawl.
Links related to each of our guests may be found below, where you can buy Dan Rebellato's book 'Theatre & Globalization', find out the latest information on Anna Brownsted's live art installations, or book a place on Nick Hennegan's London Literary Pub Crawls.
