Commissions

Born in a Taxi is frequently commissioned to create exclusive performances for specific events or locations. Tailoring a performance to a clients requirements can be done for a one off event such as the launch for 2004 Melbourne Grand Prix or for a season of performances as provided for the Mind & Body Gallery of the Melbourne Museum 2001. Born in a Taxi can create something completely new, or adapt an existing concept for a specific event.

 
 

Unspoken 

The sad reality is that the manner in which we navigate our declining years and depart this earth is rarely of our choosing.

This confronting state of affairs is not going away. However communicating and discussing the paradoxes and complexities that face us as we age, helps to not only make us feel better about it. It also encourages us to be pro-active and plan for what may lie ahead.

This performance deals with these issues with great humour and authentic affection.  

Sit back, have a laugh, shed a tear and get ready to talk.

 
To research, design and devise a performance from a general brief that is educational, wonderfully visual and extremely entertaining is a testament to their skills... They are a fantastic team to work with... The general public love them, the staff love them and the management love them. I highly recommend this company.
