Interview with the creatives behind two shows inspired by Kafka's story 'A Report for an Academy' which explore race, migration, ageing and "humanimal" agency.

These award-winning shows translate Kafka's dark parable of un-belonging for the modern day: 'Kafka's Ape' by Tony Miyambo, and 'Words and Music' by Ed Gaughan and Wes Williams. Kafka's story has found its way into blistering explorations of race and migration, and grown-up reflections on ageing and "humanimal" agency, at the same time morphing Kafka's prose into drama and hilarious stand-up comedy. Kafka as you've never seen or heard him before. This podcast explores the origins and evolution of the shows with the creatives who made them.
