Gina Tay Limpus
GINA TAY LIMPUS is a Matilda Award winning (Best Emerging Artist 2019 + Best Independent Production 2019) physical performer, director, theatre-maker and teaching artist. Gina is the Associate Director for Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre, Artistic Director of NDRNCE and has been a core member of performance ensembles The SUI Ensemble, 30LD and The PHP Collective.
A trained actor and physical performer, Gina's practice is founded in an extensive exploration of the Suzuki Method of Actor Training, Butoh Dance-Theatre, Viewpoints, Lecoq, the Andante Method, Feldenkrais, aerial performance, contact improvisation and a body-first approach to performance and devising. Deeply interested in ritual and ceremony, Gina’s independent practice investigates the role of ritual in our everyday lives, how we build community and establish self through repeated conscious and unconscious behaviour.
While completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drama at QUT and a Master of Professional Practice in Performing Arts at USC specialising in physical and contemporary performance making, Gina became a core member of Zen Zen Zo’s Performance Ensemble and co-created numerous shows with emerging and established Brisbane artists. Her devising and performance credits include work with Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre, Younes Bacchir, Strings Attached, Daniel Evans, The Good Room, Dairkakudakan, The SUI Ensemble, Backbone Youth Arts, Tone Black Productions, Daniel Gough, Vena Cava Productions, The PHP Collective and The Maltman Lab.
As a director, Gina’s credits include Be Our Witness and Tangerine Hour with NDRNCE, Queendom Animalia, Leonardo’s Last Supper (AD) and Zen Zen Zo’s The Tempest (AD) with Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre, along with numerous In-School-Residency productions. Be Our Witness was the debut work of recently formed performance ensemble, NDRNCE (fka. Ritual Theatre), and received special commendation in the Anywhere Festival Awards 2019.
