This June I participated once again in the Walkabout Theater Summer Training Intensive.
We spent five days training physically and vocally, and in the evenings worked with the Walkabout Ensemble to craft a performance piece. I created a 10 minute solo performance about the nature of memory and what it's like when a day dream becomes a nightmare.
I also got up on stilts for the first time and was introduced to some of the stilt dancing that has become a signature of this company's work.

Claire Allegra Taylor is a cultivator, investigator, and questioner of human relationships. She firmly believes that humans can always do better, be it in our treatment of the ones we love, our desire to fix epidemic social problems, or our care for our environment. Claire wants to use theatre as a means to show how this is possible. She would like to create work that is vibrant in its language and physical capacity that challenges a modern audience’s expectations.
