Theatre company Cap-a-Pie have a new offering, with the Newcastle-based creatives giving audiences the chance to see the city through new eyes with the launch of The Other City podcast on Tuesday 2nd April.

It’s a free piece of theatre that can be experienced whenever and wherever, and unlike other site-specific audio shows that follow a set trail or route, The Other City will be available at any point, in any city that the audience chooses. The podcast makes for a self-led journey through their city, with fictional Rio De Janeiro resident Isabella your guide.

It’s a new way to find out about the city of Newcastle Upon Tyne, and the influences that have shaped it. Created with Dr Matt Davies from Newcastle University’s School of Geography, Politics & Sociology. Matt looks at how the global and the local come together in urban environments, and has spent time in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil researching the effects that world events like the World Cup and the Olympics have on local communities.

The Other City will be available to download as a free podcast from Tuesday 2nd April, and two free meet the team events are taking place at Alphabetti Theatre in Newcastle Upon Tyne at 2pm on Saturday 6th April and Theatre Delicatessen in Sheffield at 2pm on Saturday 13th April. 

Sign up to be the first to experience The Other City at their website here.
