S1: E1 Simon Callow & Hannah Rudd

Super Humans Podcast

Super Humans podcast series: in each episode we invite someone who inspires us to exchange stories with our dancers.
Here actor, writer, director Simon Callow chats with Rambert Dancer Hannah Rudd.

You may know Simon from his roles in films like Four Weddings and a Funeral, A Room with a View and Shakespeare in Love. And his pursuits go far beyond his acting. He simultaneously pursues careers as actor, director and writer and his lifelong passion for classical music has seen him directing opera productions and appearing alongside major symphony orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and BBC Symphony Orchestra. 

He’s currently working on the fourth and final volume of his multi-toned biography of Orson Wells and had lockdown not struck, would now be performing in a new stage production "I'm Sorry Prime Minister I Can't Quite Remember" by BAFTA award-winning writer Jonathan Lynn.

Despite all these talents, we still can't offer you a dance class with Simon - but we can oblige with Hannah who teaches beginners ballet here - or for advanced dancers there's a class here.
