Keira Mayo

Keira Mayo is a feminist playwright and activist from Toronto. She uses arts-based methodologies, specifically improvised performance and games, to explore the processes by which communication might both be regulated and regulate our future imaginative potential. Keira's work obscures the boundaries between the disciplinary fields of philosophy, gender and queer studies, and psychoanalysis. Beyond this, she enjoys gymnastics, slowness, and sketching.
