Notes

She/They Based across Brisbane, Melbourne and Tasmania :) Hello! I am Tayla, a performing artist currently based in Naarm. My parents hail from St Vincent and the Grenadines and Brisbane and raised me with a strong involvement in sports and the outdoors. We moved often growing up, living in NZ, Indonesia, Australia, China, Kuala Lumpur and America. Although at times this was difficult I will be forever grateful to have been raised in a way that made the world and my own independence so accessible to me. As an artists my greatest passion is acting and sharing human stories in all their pain and beauty with the world - hoping to create a sense of belonging in the audience or a fantastical escape from our sometimes difficult realities. When I am not performing I write, paint and work on photography - visual art and physical performance are my favourite ways to express creatively. In my daily life I advocate for LGBTQIA+ communities, inclusive practise, accessibility and the oceans health - these are all areas that affect my life greatly and I hope through art and practise we can find a way to adjust our approach to life to better this world. As someone who loves learning I have built up quite a few skills including: Advanced Ski and Snowboarding, Surfing, Horse Riding, Rock Climbing, Advanced Open Water Diver, Jet Ski and Boat Licence, Dance (Pole, Contemporary), Stage Combat, Boxing, Clowning, Juggling, Singing (Jazz, Pop, Blues, Folk). Highly proficiency in General American and RP and London Dialects, Proficient in Southern American, New York, Irish, Scottish and Russian (sound knowledge of phonetics and dialects).
