The Legacy Tapes: Natalie Ibu

*This podcast was included in The Stage’s top podcasts of 2017!*

Rebecca Atkinson-Lord has a series of conversations with artistic directors about leaving a lasting impact in the ephemeral world of theatre. In this episode, Rebecca talks to Natalie Ibu who runs tiata fahodzi, a company that makes work reflecting the changing African diaspora in contemporary Britain. Discussion turns to diversity, and what that word actually means, as well as welcoming new audiences into theatres by breaking down some of the formalities that are traditionally associated with going to the theatre.
