Ep 9: Tempo, Gender, and Writing Assholes w/ Angela Cavallin

00:53:32 Download (49MB)

Fellow unicorn-writer-director, Angela Cavallin, joins us in the studio (shout out to those who saw her at our live show for The Sonar Network launch event at Bad Dog Theatre in Toronto). We chat about how her initial journey into the entertainment industry as an actor has come to shape her writing and directing skills and how she loves writing assholes and will probably be an asshole herself in her next table reading by forcing her actors to read to the tempo of a metronome. She also shares her joy for following in-the-moment urges and how this wonderfully selfish tool can be uber useful. What’s a line-read and how do actors feel about it? We talk about it. Also, she’s a WOMAN. We mention that. Is that a THING for you? Also, Caleigh’s phone dings a lot. Deal with it. AND AND AND, a newly pregnant Angie says the words, “eat a dick,” and we left it in because it, too, is important. (Tanya would also like to add: “Tiny is hungover and it hurts.” Because we already sounded too put together in this episode.)
