She has also trained with the Suzuki Company of Toga and has taught at international institutions including Atlantic Theater and NYU in New York, The Adelaide College of the Arts, Flinders University, and the University Javeriana in Colombia among others.
Tina’s performance aesthetic fuses stylized movement, music and text. As a practitioner she is interested in the interrelation between physical and psychological approaches to acting and how the physical training of Suzuki and Viewpoints can inform a range of performance styles from the naturalistic to the abstract. Tina has worked with many world renowned companies including; The Metropolitan Opera, Punchdrunk in the Off-Broadway hit Sleep No More, SITI Company, La Fura dels Baus, The English National Opera, Collegiate Chorale at Carnegie Hall and her own work has been produced in major international arts festivals across Colombia, Italy the United States and Spain.
