Clair uses music and drama to work with groups particularly older people. She works independently and in partnership with organisations such as Age UK Camden, Loud Minority, SeaChange, and Elders Voice. Her collaborations with community groups use song and drama to bring issues of importance to participants onto the stage or screen. She directs Bolder Voices, age 65+ who sing the politics of age. Clair is a Churchill Fellow 2013 and Chair of Capital Age Festival, which explores new ways older people can engage in the arts in London.

Clair was Artistic Director of Spare Tyre Theatre 1979-2007
