Promoter Claire Courtney

Claire is the impresario behind Jing & Tonic, a monthly variety show that’s become a fixture in Beijing’s nightlife over the last ten months.

Last month Claire launched What the Folk, a showcase for the city’s folk acts. She’s also a member of a folk trio called Juniper. And that is on top of her day job as a green screen actor.

She comes to the Point to talk about launching a variety show in the middle of the pandemic, what it was like having her first five shows shut down by the police, and why she loves to take risks.
