What does a scenographer actually do? Where does the clown's red nose come from? And how bossy is a director allowed to be? Scenpodden is a podcast about theater and performing arts, with director Rebecca Örtman and theater professor Karin Helander.
Every other Friday, Scenpodden invites a prominent stage personality to help you figure out different concepts and phenomenon in the theater world. It’s all about acting, script writing and directing to genres like satire, monologue and radio shows. Among the guests are some of the theater’s most famous names, such as director Suzanne Osten, actor Stina Ekblad, radio director Malin Axelsson and comic and actor Özz Nûjen.
Scenpodden is directed by Rebecca Örtman, director and artistic director of RATS Theater, together with Karin Helander, professor of theater studies at Stockholm University and many-year theater critics at Svenska Dagbladet.
- – Scenpodden is both for those who are curious about the subject and the more initiated. Karin Helander has the expert role. I am a practitioner and can ask the everyday questions. Together with the invited guest we can provide a broad and engaging picture of the subject we are talking about, says Rebecca Örtman.
Scenpodden is a joint venture from RATS Theater, a research scene at Stockholm University, and the Faculty of Humanities at the same university.
– We want Scenpodden to be both educational and in-depth. The hope is that it will be able to open the theater history and today’s theatre scene for new audiences, but also be involved in and deepen the ongoing conversation about the performing arts, says Karin Helander.
Magnus Bremmer, one half behind the popular Bildningpodden, has been project manager for the production.
– Interviews are a very educational genre. Since knowledge dissemination to the public is part of the university’s government-funded mission, it is as logical as much needed for universities to take a place in the podcast world, says Magnus Bremmer.
