Podcast: The Bridge

Last year Sarah Gregson took part in a Symposium on the West Gate Bridge, as part of the Art & Industry Festival. The festival commissioned a podcast, The Bridge, which was produced by Overland magazine and Witness Performance. The podcast is co-hosted and produced by Ben Keene, from Witness Performance, and Jacinda Woodhead, from Overland. It was mixed by, and with additional music by, Ben Keene. As Overland write:

This podcast documents important moments from the 2018 Art & Industry Festival that relate to the history and significance of the West Gate Bridge. It will take you to symposiums; intimate accounts from workers who survived the collapse; scenes from the recent production of The Bridge, a play written by the late Vicki Reynolds in 1990, which tells the stories of the bridge workers using verbatim techniques; and, finally, to a special performance of ‘Throw your arms around me’ by Mark Seymour, James Henry and local community singers (led by Jennifer Lund), largely sung in the Yuwaalaraay language.
