Delving into the complexity of modern urban life, comedic shape-shifter Taylor uses fragmented narrative to reveal the fantastical behind the mundane and the disturbing beneath the ordinary as her myriad of characters grapple with happiness and mortality, careening together towards their fates. From a macabre psychiatrist's receptionist, to a faux spiritual CEO, to an evil Cabbage Patch Doll, the characters of Cannonball are deceptively everyday. You work with them. They went to your school. You met them once at a party. But you've never before seen them quite like this. Playful, daring and injected with a keen sense for satire, Taylor twists and transforms through a minefield of adolescent angst, mid-life disappointment and familial discontent, exploring the inner lives of characters at once recognizable and bizarre. From this multi-award winning solo performer, Cannonball is a journey through the delightful, dark and dangerous recesses of the mind, pulling out all the stops to pack a surprising, funny and insightful punch. Powered by a unique combination of comic fervour and compelling vulnerability, Cannonball rockets irrepressibly towards the future, wreaking havoc along the way.
