Robert Tinning is a Byron Bay/Perth based movement artist and choreographer dedicated to creating, developing and sharing original multidisciplinary art projects, in collaboration with inter-generational artists. A graduate of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) in 2015, he has performed for Shaun Parker & Company, Tasdance, STRUT Dance and a number of independent creators, on national and international tours.
Robert holds cultural-futuristic movements as his biggest inspiration, with the Afro-Latino cultures being especially personal to him. Understanding that performance art and live art are practices of human connection, he has already begun to act nationally and internationally. His projects have focused on inter-generational interdisciplinary art exchanges and creative developments, in collaboration with institutions and artists, in regional and urban centres in Australia and overseas.
As a movement director, he has closely collaborated with Perth born actor/director Dacre Montgomery of Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ in the production and release of his short films ‘IN VITRO’ (2019) and ‘NIGHTMARES’ (2019) which have garnered close to 2 million views across social media.
Robert dreams to have his creative practice become a synonym of artistic experiences that connect gifted interdisciplinary artists, in our present era, to re-imagine and cultivate an alternative new future.
