Controversy & Theatre w. Lily Climenhaga

Ep. 85

Dramaturg Lily Climenhaga joins me from Germany to talk about her work & research on Swiss theatre director Milo Rau.

We discuss how artists utilize theatrical formats to maximize their impact on audiences, we talk about the balancing act of being a provocative artist without being an egotistical monster, and we look at how controversy can be a useful tool in an artist’s strategy.

Be sure to support Lily’s work on translating Rau’s Global Realism and learn more about Milo Rau from the International Institute of Political Murder.

79 – Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God (2005) w. Brayden Scobie

Brayden Scobie returns to, yet again, talk about D&D stuff. This time: Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God (2005).

We watched the second D&D movie and it was refreshingly more of a Dungeons and Dragons film than the 2000 one. We discuss how, sometimes, simpler is better; or at least has more personality than a generic fantasy movie with a branded title.

Go see Brayden in meatspace at Hexagon Board Game Cafe for drop-in D&D, watch his streaming show Tomes & Tombs, and go listen to our podcousins Fanimorphs – The Dork Bajir Chronicles: An Animorphs Podcast
