Human Interest with Col Cseke

Calgary, AB

Col lives, works and makes plays on Treaty 7 land. He’s the Artistic & Executive Director of Inside Out Theatre, a deaf, disabled, and mad theatre company plus spearheads non-fiction storytelling projects under the banner Field Work. Some favourite past projects include the documentary play Parts & Labour, which documents the intense world of temporary foreign workers and meat packing in Alberta, In The Wake, with the Downstage Creation Ensemble, which tells an epic tale of climate change on a tiny platform and The Magpie Treasure Talks, co-created with Ellen Close, which presents expert talks on unexpected topics by homeless Calgarians. Previously Col served as Co-Artistic Director at Verb Theatre, Playwright in Residence at Alberta Theatre Projects, and Artistic Associate at The Scottish Opera during the Commonwealth Cultural Festival in Glasgow.

Human Interest is a new pop-up talk show packed with comedy, interviews, games and more where host Cseke welcomes compelling Calgarians to the stage to poke fun at the news and revel in all the interesting humans that make Calgary the fascinating and infuriating place it is.
