Liam Tait

In 20 words or less, what is the best thing about being part of this department?
Having a community of amazingly talented and knowledgeable people to talk to and learn from.

What is your advice to first years and sophomores about getting connected to this department?
Come talk to us! Show us you are interested and we will bring you in.

What is the most valuable thing you’ve learned at K?
How the ground feels beneath my feet.

What has been your favorite class at K? Why?
In spring 2018, we did a Deep Study (which could be described as a formalized reading club) on As We Have Always Done by Leanne Betosamosake Simpson. This is my favorite book. I got to read and work closely with some amazing CES students and faculty. We are still using and working on what we learned together.

How have you taken advantage of the open curriculum or experienced breadth in your education?
The CES major itself takes advantage of the open curriculum. I’m just along for the ride.

What experiential education opportunities have you participated in?
I saved it all for my senior year.

What is your SIP?
My SIP utilizes Deep Study and the Nanabush Methodology to examine and alter how we learn circus skills in Cirque du K. If that makes no sense–come talk to me about it!

What are your career aspirations/next steps after K?
I’m auditioning for some circus schools around the country. After a few years of that I’ll go back to graduate school.
