Born in Thailand and raised in Europe, Tivy spent her childhood moving around and hating Ikea. Growing up, Tivy took every opportunity to perform, winning two singing competitions by the tender age of 12. Her passion grew to musical theatre, partner acrobatics and then acting.
During Tivy’s time at ACA she has worked with JUTE Theatre Company on the creative development of I Is Maggie. In September 2022 Tivy will be reprising the lead role as Maggie in Queensland.
Tivy’s ACA credits include Clytemnestra in Agamemnon: The Iphigenia Quartet (dir. Claudia Barrie), Sister Lawrence in Romeo and Juliet (dir. Craig Baldwin), Kristine in A Doll’s House (dir. Frankie Savage), Lena in A Mouthful of Birds (dir. Lucy Burke), Duckling in Our Country’s Good (dir. Troy Harrison) and her personal favourite – Betty 3 in Collective Rage (dir. Troy Harrison). In a collaboration with the NIDA graduate directors, Tivy also played Hedda in Hedda Gabler (dir. Eve Beck).
Prior to ACA Tivy worked on a variety of independent and university productions including Packemin Productions’ Miss Saigon (dir. Neil Gooding & Ylaria Rodgers, md. Peter Hayward), Factory Space Theatre’s A Peculiar River (Measure for Measure) (dir. Roz Riley), Balter Theatre’s Hypnagogism as Taryn, MTS’s The Threepenny Opera as Polly Peachum, Spring Awakening as Martha and NUT’s Assassins as Lynette (Squeaky) Fromme.
