Sarita Das sets out to make art to “feel less alone”, and “more connected to the giant existence that is being human”. The Tāmaki Makaurau theatre creator gets to the bottom of how that all comes about in discussion with director Alice Canton for this second episode of Disruptors.
“You see a thing and when you come out of that film or show you can’t see the world in any other way because it’s shown you a new frame of reference,” says Alice.
Sarita and Alice chat through their creative process with all its struggles and triumphs, talk the importance of prioritising indigenous practices in theatre and dive into the big D, diversity.
Disruptors is a podcast series where creatives in Aotearoa talk about how they disrupt with their art, produced by Basement Theatre.
