The Realist

Episode 1: Risk and Bravery


The Realist IS BACK! And this time we’ve brought friends. Now in partnership with Morley Radio
and the Ragdoll Foundation, in each episode you will hear from the young people of Waterloo Community Theatre recorded from the amazing Morley Radio Studios, as well as out and about on the streets of SE1.


In this week’s episode we take a look at Risk and Bravery. First up, OASIS-MR, a risky look at the language of the school day, through the medium of ASMR. The group then take to Lower Marsh,
in the midst of the Waterloo Carnival, to ask the public if they feel brave enough do a dare. Unsurprisingly, some are more willing than others. We then hand over to Xander, Bess and Mousa who face their fears for the listeners.


In our regular profile we meet group member Xander, to find out who he is, where he comes from and his aspirations in life.


What should we talk about in the next episode? Let us know on social media.

‘The Realist’ was conceived during lockdown to explore bridging the distance between us over the airwaves. Each week during our sessions (held via Zoom) we went live on the internet exploring work from our previous projects and create new work exploring themes close to our hearts. We now share that work with the world via Morley Radio (with thanks to them and The Ragdoll Foundation for their support.
