Clare Dolan is painter, director, performer, curator, and intensive care unit nurse living in Northeast Vermont. As a puppeteer with the Bread and Puppet Theater for decades, she performed in cities and towns throughout the United States and internationally.

In 2010, Clare created The Museum of Everyday Life, an ongoing multifaceted museum experiment that’s goal is a slow-motion cataloging of life via ordinary objects of no monetary value, yet immense consequence. She is a specialist in picture-story performance (cantastoria) and the co-founder of Banners and Cranks, the first international American festival devoted to this performance form, which occurs annually in rotating venues.
