Yasemin quit Law school in second year due to her love of acting and storytelling. Doing the Law Review was where she got to act and write skits that started her on the path to performance. She did a double major in her Arts Degree in Screen Production and also Theatre Production(Performance focus). After this she went onto do Visual Arts Honours in Video Art, Technology and Performance where she received first class Honours. Her works Esmerelda were selected to tour nationally and Internationally for prestigious art and film festivals.
She has performed performance art solo and with different performance and live art groups in Australia. Her solo spoken word, dance and video work was shown at the State Theatre. Yasemin was finding that her ethnicity and “look” meant she wasn’t suitable for castings and this drove her more into Directing and Writing. As such she has done stand up, sketch, improv and performance art over her career. She has studied the Mike Leigh Method, Howard Fine Technique, Stanislavski, Commedia dell’arte, Long form improv, Clowning and method acting nationally and internationally. She was a recipient of a Diversity Scholarship at the Improv Conspiracy that furthered her love of improv comedy. Yasemin recently returned from LA early due to Corona where she was doing stand up and studying improv comedy, sketch, TV writing and acting.
