Tanine Dunais is an Iranian improviser, currently living in the Netherlands. She started her improv journey at Dubai’s Courtyard Playhouse, and built her foundations with Johnstonian formats such as Maestro and Theatresports.
She’s forever in the hunt for opportunities to perform in her native tongue, Persian, and to showcase more of her heritage and culture, on stage. During her explorations, she fell in love with expressing herself without the use of spoken language. Her preferred modes of expression revolve around physical theatre, clowning, buffoonery, and puppetry.
Recently, she’s been digging deep into her experiences of performing as an expat, and is constantly working to find ways to help fellow improvisers bring their cultural and religious heritage to life, on stage.
