In the first part of a two-part discussion, we speak to Polly Bennett - a woman who has taken the idea and profession of Movement Director to new heights.

You may have heard Polly a few times in our podcasts before when we brought you podcasts from the company she co-founded, Monobox. In addition to being a superwoman running a business that supports artists, she worked with the RSC before going on to work at multiple Olympics ceremonies and top notch cross-over directors like Sam Mendes, who she worked with directly after Bohemian Rhapsody on the absolutely thrilling “Lehman Trilogy” at the National Theatre.

Curtain Call’s Theo Bosanquet and Curtain Call co-founder Matt Humphrey sat down (in a sometimes noisy Above the Arts Club) to talk to Polly about how she found herself as the go to movement director.  Now, as this chat was nearly an hour, we are going to make this one a two-parter. In this episode, Polly brings us the story of her journey from the National Youth Theatre to being on set every day with the spitting image of Freddie Mercury.
