Teacher Spotlight: Jean Taylor

Doug GoldringCommunity, Training

We’d love to introduce you to one of our incredible TBG teaching artists, Jean Taylor! Read our interview with her below…

What do you enjoy most about teaching?

JT: Teaching Theatrical Clown is about accepting your own beautiful ridiculousness, which in turn is a way to be fully present. Creating a space for students to experience and connect with their clown is pure joy.

What is a TBG tool you love to use in your own acting journey?

JT: Clown helps us embrace seeming opposites – vulnerability and resilience; humor and poignancy; and my favorite, that I take into the world with me, we are experts and we know nothing at the same time.

What is a project that you’ve been a part of that you are proud of?

JT: I am working on a series of short clown-esque pieces titled “Great Small Moments.” I am also part of an Intergenerational Co-Mentoring project that continually nurtures and surprises me.
