Bec is a graduate of NIDA and has been working in production, stage and company management for the past ten years.
atyp is where I found a home in the theatre. I called my first show and worked with international artists on a Festival event for the first time. My fellow classmates have gone on to become close friends and colleagues and leaders in their field. The professional network atyp helped me establish is now the foundation for my career in the arts.
