The Art of Education

Recorded back in January on a lovely winter’s day, Emily and Paulus sat down with Stormina Teacup, primary school teacher by day and cabaret stage manager by night. We discover what Stormina loves about her school’s music teacher, how she has been included in an exhibition by Steve McQueen, how the arts are taught at her school (we’d love to hear from other teachers), and we continue our quest to find the difference between a stage manager and a stage kitten.

The Art of Working the System

This week Paulus and Emily are joined by Onyx Fatale AKA Sikisa ‘Twix’ Barnes. ‘Twix’ performs both stand-up comedy and burlesque, sometimes both within the one act. She also holds down a full-time career. We discuss balancing work with performing and the desire to find a place where you belong and a platform within the arts to be seen and heard.

The Art of Drag

This week on the Up Yer Arts podcast Paulus and Emily throw the plan out of the window. Well, Paulus does, and Emily tries to reign them in. Our mission takes us to the ‘The Art of Drag Course’ creator Michael Twaits. We go on many twists and turns from how Michael went from being an actor to drag and cabaret star, his life as a new Dad, gender soup, and how each of us have witnessed students blossom on our courses. We packed a lot in, no wonder the plan got thrown well and truly out of the window!
