About Amy Clare Tasker

Aslam Husain Photography

I am a theatre maker and creative producer, obsessed with unexpected connections.

I began my career in San Francisco, where I was artistic director of Inkblot Ensemble, and an associate artist with Cutting Ball Theater and EXIT Theatre. I graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a degree in Drama, after a year at the University of Manchester as an international exchange student.

​Since moving to London in 2013, I have created performances at Rich Mix, Camden People’s Theatre, Shoreditch Town Hall, artsdepot, Theatre Deli, The Cockpit, LOST Theatre, Canal Cafe Theatre, Theatre Utopia, and the Southbank Centre’s Women of the World Festival.

I am a co-director of Pinecone Performance Lab with Susie Italiano. Our most recent work HOT (Helen of Troy), a 90s-inspired musical about beauty, power, and myth, featuring a teenage me and the voice of Helen of Troy, premiered at The Cockpit in 2020. From 2016-2019, we developed Home is Where, a cross-cultural oral history library which has taken many forms in performance from a multi-character dystopian fiction to a one-on-one interactive performance.

In addition to my creative work, I am passionate about connecting and supporting fellow artists. As co-director of the Voila! Europe Theatre Festival, I programme an annual celebration of multilingual, multicultural, multidisciplinary theatre. With Pinecone, I created and facilitated the London Devised Theatre Intensive (2018-2019), a two-week workshop for theatre makers using Open Space Technology.  In 2020, I became the director of Theatre Maker, The Cockpit’s artist development programme.

I live in North London with my partner, two cats, and four ukuleles.
