Raine first discovered the wonder of theatre while studying in Tasmania. Six years on and she’s still addicted.
Before attending NIDA, Raine worked with many of Hobart’s major theatre companies, including Big Monkey Inc., Tasmanian Theatre Unit Trust/Craig Wellington Productions, Hobart Repertory Theatre Society, Tasmania Performs/Performing Lines, Old Nick Theatre Company and the Tasmanian Theatre Company.
Raine started at NIDA working towards a career in stage management, but during her time there discovered the joys of audio, audio engineering and video systems. While studying, Raine also somehow managed to fit in casual audio engineering work for companies such as Coda Audio, Carriageworks and Belvoir St Theatre.
In 2014, Raine was awarded the Peter Baynes Memorial Scholarship, which will enable her to undertake an overseas secondment, specialising in integrated media performance, for which she is endlessly grateful.
