American Musician St Vincent

American multi-instrumentalist St Vincent talks about her early career and pretending to be her own agent

On The Arts Hour this week, Nikki Bedi is joined by Australian film critic Tara Judah and Romanian flash fiction writer Sophie Van Llewyn, who discusses her novella, Bottled Goods.

Saudi Arabian film director Haifaa al-Mansour talks about making a biopic of Frankenstein author Mary Shelly, American musician and polymath St Vincent on pretending to be her own agent in a desperate bid to get gigs and Nikki has an exclusive interview with British conductor Sir Mark Elder who discusses the discovery of a lost opera by Italian composer Donizetti.

British actress Natalie Dormer, best known for her roles in The Tudors and Game of Thrones, talks about her new project, a TV series based on the Australian novel Picnic at Hanging Rock, and American novelist Ann Tyler explains why she’s happy to avoid the political and focus on the personal.
