My name is Dannii Cohen, I am a former performer and psychologist turned author, producer and radio host.
I am the host of the twice monthly radio podcast Behind the Mirror of Music where I am joined by the biggest names in musical theatre history for a journey through the rich archive of the musicals and the stories behind the shows.
As a person living with autistic borderline and PTSD it can be hard to focus on who you are and what you are doing. This is why it has taken me a long time to make sense of myself and my life, especially as most of my days are filled with self doubt. Despite this I want to be part of this world and reach out to everyone through art, music, laughter and simply by helping out where I can.
This is why I created Divine Varod Productions. It is my world in a sense; the place where I collect my thoughts. The home to share with the world what I am doing at this very moment.
