Olivia graduated in 2020 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts: Dance from the Queensland University of Technology and has since built a career as an independent artist, dancer, choreographer and producer. Olivia has spent most of 2023 performing in Karul Project’s 15 stop national tour for SILENCE while also working as a producer for BlakDance. Over the years she has also performed with Digi Youth Arts, Polytoxic, and assisted with the delivery of Bangarra Dance Theatre’s youth program Rekindling in regional communities.
