She recently spoke alongside Stelarc on a panel ART and the BODY at the Wheeler Centre for Ideas for the Festival of Live Art in Melbourne. In 2014, Natalie was the recipient of a DanceWEB Scholarship during the Impulstanz Festival in Vienna. She has also been a JUMP mentee under the guidance of Martin Del Amo with the support of the Australia Council for the Arts.
Natalie is currently developing two new works, DESTINY, a solo taking inspiration from sci-fi and her past to create new futures; and LIMITLESS, a group work experimenting with failure and fear, using these elements as tools for creativity.
