It's a ROM-COM recap like you've never heard before. Let's face it, we've all attempted to recreate pieces of romantic comedies into our own lives, sometimes unknowingly.

Get in your comfy pants and grab your favorite cocktail with ROM-COMEDIANS Abbey Finch (@abbeyfinch) and Jenny Jennings (@_jennyjennings) for a new episode ...

In this episode, we talk to Harriet Waghorn and Kamala Devam about their experience working across different genres of dance.

In this episode, we talk to Karthika Naïr and Eva Martinez about the role of dramaturgy. An artist’s creation space is a rather special place to inhabit.
