Tanya Gerstle initiated OpticNerve Performance Group to create text-based works with a dynamic staging approach using Pulse, a physical approach to the staging of narrative text.
Tanya has worked in professional theatre in Europe and Australia for 30 years in a variety of roles: actor, director, performance maker, dramaturg, company manager, festival curator and teaching artist. While based in Amsterdam she made, performed in and toured her own work with multi-lingual, physical performers and began her evolving practice into improvisational performance structures and their application to the making of theatre. She has been using this approach in the training of actors, making performance and directing theatre for twenty-five years.
