Tilly Taylor

Independent Producer

Tilly (she/her) is an Independent Producer working across theatre, dance, interdisciplinary performance and festivals. She prioritises and develops work that playfully traverses form and genre, reimagining the ways that artists engage with audiences.

Having worked at Headlong Theatre in the UK from 2019 – 2020, Tilly has recently returned to Dublin and to her independent producing practice. At Headlong she led on artist development, community engagement and access programmes, and from this brings a set of priorities to her independent producing practice: developing artistic practice over time and creating accessible spaces for both audiences and artists.

Tilly works with Murmuration, a Dublin-based collective of theatre artists, making live, narrative sound installations in unconventional spaces. She also produces interdisciplinary work with choreographers and performers Robyn Byrne and Rachel Ni Bhraonain, and is developing new modes of digital storytelling with writer and performer Emer Heatley.

Other companies she has worked with include Dublin Dance Festival, Landmark Productions, TED Conferences, New York Live Arts, Live Collision, Amanda Coogan, Dublin Theatre of the Deaf, Sugarglass Theatre, Create Ireland (National Development Agency for Collaborative Arts in Ireland), and Trans Live Art Salon. In 2016 Tilly co-founded Bombinate Theatre, an award-winning collective of theatre makers creating work for young audiences in Ireland.

Both earnest and true, and at just 10 minutes it offers a profound experience — The Guardian (The Ghost Caller by Headlong)

They are entertaining and gripping, turning in unexpected directions and hitting suddenly dark, tender or heart rending notes. — The Guardian (UNPRECEDENTED by Headlong)
