Portrait of Christian Taylor

Christian Taylor

Christian is a Melbourne-based actor, writer and theatremaker. He graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre Practice (2014). His theatre investigates the nature of grief, physical ritual, the limitations of language, and phenomenological performance, and he is fascinated (perhaps morbidly so) by speculative environmental literature.

Christian was awarded Best Emerging Writer at Melbourne Fringe 2016 for How Can You Sleep At Night, and has continued to build this catalogue of Climate Fiction with the 24-hour play generator Tipping Points for the Emerging Writer’s Festival and eco-activist drama Fall Where They May.                                                     

Christian’s theatre credits include: #howtodisappear (Melbourne Fringe); Plus Sign Attached (Living Positive Victoria & VCA); In The Dark (Metanoia Theatre); How Can You Sleep At Night (Melbourne Fringe); The Bells (Theatre Research Institute); Shrine (Kin Collective); and Surprise Party for Jem and Dead Max (La Mama).
