Across the Aisle is an award winning performing arts criticism podcast based in Melbourne. Monthly, hosts Carla and Philip each choose a performance to attend and discuss 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.
Meet Team Aisle
We live, love, record and make on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation. Land that was never ceded. Land that was and always will be Aboriginal.
Philip is an English and literature teacher, blogger and cultural consumer from Melbourne, Victoria. His writing and poetry has been published in Traffic, Death Mook and Victorian Writer. He has a particular interest in immersive performance pieces.
Ron is a digital media producer in Melbourne, Victoria. He is also a closet train spotter, accomplished musician and immersive theatre conspirator. Ron has performed in events appearing in Adelaide Fringe, Brisbane Festival and Dark Mofo.
Across the Aisle will always be free. We believe theatre and the performing arts are for everyone. We make our podcast so that listeners don’t need to see the shows to feel included. Theatre is a performance of our cultural times; it’s from this angle that we approach their criticism. Deep cuts, queer theory, feminism and the promotion of minority lead narratives abound.
However, we can’t keep doing this critical (boom-tish) work without your help! If you value arts criticism and the work that we do please become a patron today!
Hello! We love hearing from you! If you’d like to invite us to your show or send us a message please get in touch.
