Clara grew up playing the harpsichord and singing baroque music. Before moving to Mexico she studied musicology at the Sorbonne and sang with a small early music ensemble in Paris. In San Miguel she took up acting and has since appeared many times in every theatre in town both as a singer and an actor. In 2016 she gave a full recital at the Angela Peralta theatre; appeared as Sonia in Christopher Durang’s Vanya, Sonia, Masha and Spike; and played the female roles in 39 steps. She is also a member of the aerial acrobatics troupe, Gravity Works.
