How did theatre survive a pandemic 100 years ago? In this episode I interview my very own mother about her latest creative project: a podcast episode about the Australian performing arts industry in during the 1918 flu pandemic. In this episode we talk about the similarities between the pandemics, the importance of performing arts, and the ethics of creating works of nonfiction. We hope you enjoy!
