Queering Roles and Fighting Typecasts

Queering Roles and Fighting Typecasts

September 30, 2020

This podcast takes a look at what it means to be typecast into a certain role in the creative arts, an industry notorious for expecting people to perform in certain roles. In this podcast, queer/disrupt convenor and performer Nick Cherryman talks to Miriam O'Brien and Ashley Jordan, a professional actress and dancer respectively. Both discuss how they have worked with, and against, expectations placed on them in the creative industry. The conversation covers gender, sexuality, and race, and looks at the intersections between these categories, and asks how we can break typecasting expectations, or even play up to them, in a famously competitive industry.
