Natalie is a recent graduate from the University of Wollongong where she studied a Bachelor of Performance (Acting). She is also currently studying at NIDA in the Screen Actors Studio, under the teachings of Les Chantery and Brendon McDonall.
Originally from Greece, Natalie-Rea loves performing and everything to do with theatre and film. Her multicultural background allows her to bring a fresh interpretation and energy to any show. During her time at UoW she studied under Chris Ryan, who directed her first show Les Justes by Albert Camus, and Tim Maddock who directed her last show, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night written by Jackson Davis. Natalie-Rea has been greatly inspired by Linda Luke, who taught her about Bodyweather and movement.
Her most recent credits include Branch Nebula’s new production Skin which will be produced in 2017, and participation in the 2016 PACT Collective where she co-devised and performed in the production iDNA under the direction of Katrina Douglas (PACT Centre for Emerging Artists) and Fred Copperwaite (Moogahlin Performing Arts).
In February 2017, Natalie-Rea travelled to Malaysia with the Wollongong production of Throne of Thorns, an intercultural collaboration with director Norzizi Zulkifli, interpreting Shakespeare’s The Tempest, and combining traditional Malay theatre forms and techniques with contemporary performance practice.
