ABOUT CLAIRE

Claire Love Wilson is a multidisciplinary creator and performer based in Vancouver BC, Unceded Coast Salish territories.  She draws on various artistic mediums including; music (specifically singer-songwriting), theatre-creation, and intuitive movement.  She holds a degree in Indigenous Studies and Creative Arts from UBC, has undergone the Arrivals Personal Legacy training with Diane Roberts, and taken workshops in performance installation, dance, and physical theatre.  

Claire’s debut album Afterbirth was launched in July 2013 and weaves together poetry and lilting vocals to create tapestries of unexpected symbols and heart-drenched feeling.  She recently devised and acted in site specific performances for The Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival and The Vancouver Fringe Festival as part of The Only Animal’s outdoor installation DARE U.  Claire also recently collaborated with Korean artist Minah Lee in a residency with Battery Opera to create a full-length theatre installation about inter-racial intimacy and conflict.  

Claire is excited to be currently working on; co-creating a show called “Silenced” with Urban Ink’s BOLDSKOOL collective, creating and performing music with indie soul singer/songwriter Gillian Thomson of Sister Says, on-line storytelling for the Arrivals Website Project, and writing an original theatre piece that explores the lives of a multi-generational Scottish-Canadian family through a decolonial lens.
