Director, performer, musician and workshop tutor.
Fluent in Russian, Hebrew and English, Netta first came to Australia as a member of Israel's Itim Ensemble for the 1998 Adelaide Festival of Arts. She subsequently moved to Adelaide and founded the Yashchin Ensemble which has been a creative home to many of Adelaide's most experimental performers.
She has also worked as an independent performer and director with Parallelo, Urban Myth, Vitalstatistix and No Strings Attached. She directed The Hit for Parallelo and her production of Antigone for Urban Myth was an audience and critical favorite at the 2007 Adelaide Fringe Festival. She has also performed in film and television.
In 2007 Netta directed Tennessee Williams' Talk to me like the rain and let me listen for State Theatre SA and collaborated with No Strings Attached performer Rachel High to devise Turkish Delight, one of the four duets in Tempted.
For the 2008 Adelaide Fringe Festival, Netta performed a lead role in the play Memmie le Blanc, a co-production by Freemantle's Deck Chair theatre and Adelaide's Vitalstatistix; she also directed the Yashchin Company in I Only Came to Use the Phone, receiving an Advertiser Fringe Award.
Netta is currently enrolled in the Directing course at NIDA.
