This episode was put together as a bit of an experiment – and a very successful one at that. This was our first live recording with an audience and it took place in Louisville, Kentucky at the USITT 2019 conference. USITT is the US Institute for Theatre Technology – and it aims to advance the skills and technology of those working in theatre, entertainment, and the performing arts. Basically, if you think about live shows that might have pyrotechnics, crazy lighting and sound, special effects, amazing stunts and other things, then you aren’t far off.
What’s interesting about all this is that many of these shows are pushing boundaries and trying new things – and that means risk and uncertainty. Which of course means an open door for some amazing insights. That is exactly what we have for you.
My guests are Anna Glover and Bryan Huneycutt. If you are a long-time listener to the podcast, you will remember Anna as my guest on Episode 11. Anna is currently the Director of Organisational Health and Wellness at the Yale University School of Drama. Bryan works at Disney in Entertainment Safety. Both do cool jobs in helping directors and those involved in live theatre do amazing things and do them safely. We have a fascinating conversation that offers fantastic insights applicable to just about any domain. It also features some very thoughtful questions from the audience.
- How to speak truth to power and how to speak up;
- Building a “just” organisational culture;
- What to do when things go wrong;
- Why you should ask questions to which you already know the answers;
- How to learn from mistakes;
- Pigeons, yes – pigeons;
- Much more!
