On the Couch with Cameron Taylor

Cameron Taylor AAR On the CouchWho is Cameron Taylor?
Cameron Taylor plays PISCA – a small duck discovering a brand new world. The character style is a cross between a Cirque du Soleil style clown and French cabaret.

What would you do differently to what you do now?
I’d probably be a teacher; I love kids but I would spend my life dreading the year I have a student like me in my class. I’d have been the worst to teach.

Who inspires you and why?
Slava Polunin. He taught me that the most satisfying pursuit in life is to make others happy.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
I’d make everyone 20% more empathetic.

Favorite holiday destination and why?
I love Canggu in Indonesia. It’s a beautiful area that hasn’t been over commercialised but there are amazing restaurants and cafes hidden away all around the place. It’s a great place for relaxing, reading and writing.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
I normally take them to see the penguins in St Kilda. No one ever believes there would just be penguins in the middle of a city and that you can just walk out and see. Always a fun time.

What are you currently reading?
The Art of War by Sun Tzu.

What are you currently listening to?
In the Real Early Morning – Jacob Collier.

Happiness is?
A warm chocolate croissant and hot coffee at the South Melbourne market.

What does the future hold for you?
I’m going to be touring primary schools with Echelon Productions in August, and then I’ll be spending a couple of months developing PISCA and a few other show projects I have lined up.

Cameron will present PISCA – an immersive musical experience at Chapel Off Chapel as part of the 2018 Roola Boola Children’s Arts Festival on Tuesday 3 July – 11.00am and Thursday 5 July – 11.00am. For more information, visit: www.chapeloffchapel.com.au for details.
