Amy Clare Tasker Performance Lab works with actors, dancers, musicians, installation designers, and visual artists
to create interdisciplinary performances.
We aim to awaken curiosity and encourage empathy.
We are proud to work with a diverse ensemble of artists from different cultural and creative backgrounds.
We love the surprises that come from cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary collaboration.
Formed in 2016, the Performance Lab is led by artistic director Amy Clare Tasker, executive director Susie Italiano, and director of participation Guleraana Mir.
We are currently developing:
Home Is Where… (Rich Mix September 2016), an innovative devised performance using headphone verbatim, music, movement and multimedia to explore themes of culture, identity, and belonging.
The Helen Project (solo show coming soon, LOST Theatre 2014, DIVAfest 2013), a postmodern feminist retelling of the Trojan War myths, which began as a five-actor performance in San Francisco and is currently developing into a solo performance, on its way to becoming a full-scale multimedia installation in London.
Our work is eclectic, genre-resistant, and guided by our core artistic philosophy:
We are committed to new work, new forms, and new voices for performance.
We are inspired by connecting ancient ideas with modern sensibilities; we are intrigued by contradictory truths.
We admire bold aesthetics and unusual compositions.
We are passionate about balance, respect, and sustainability.
We are certain that including artists across culture, gender, class, and race makes better theatre.
We believe we can do more than simply reflect the world as it is; theatre has the power to show us worlds that could be.
