Established in Melbourne 1989, Born in a Taxi create and perform their own genre of improvised physical theatre. Recognised for producing highly original, physically driven work, the companies diverse performance backgrounds have created a cross discipline style that lives in-between the cracks of theatre and dance.
In any one year the company produces original works for arts festivals, street theatre festivals, performance seasons and corporate events, along with their ongoing skill sharing, teaching and workshops. Taxi enjoy mixing dance with comedy, the profound with the profane and the familiar with the unlikely.
“Not dance, not theatre, not hilarious comedy, not performance art, and yet, somehow, cleverly all of the above. Born in a Taxi is one of Melbourne’s most entertaining yet refined physical theatre groups...”
Fiona Scott Norman, The Age
