In this week’s episode, I sit down with Douglas Walker. Douglas Walker is an actor, singer, and dancer originally from Scotland. In our conversation today we discuss how he was introduced to theatre and the path that lead him to pursue it professionally, what he learned from his time in school both as a dancer as well as at the Royal Conservatory of Scotland, and what the main similarities and differences are between theatre in the UK and theatre in Canada. We also discuss his experience moving to Canada and how he has gone about developing connections and meeting a wide range of artists in the Canada theatre community, what he has learned from his experience understudying both here in Canada and in the UK, as well as the types of conversations he hopes continue to be had in the industry and where he hopes to see theatre in Canada headed in the future.
In this episode, we’re talking to Douglas Walker about his video tutorials for Apple, Android and Microsoft, and Hadley’s podcasts and discussion groups, all about empowering people with vision loss to thrive.
