Having the opportunity to live in diverse vibrant cities, Michellina loves collaborating not only with fellow musicians but also with artists of different disciplines. Venturing into ballet at a young age, Michellina continues this passion with Duo plastiCITY together with dancer, Valerie Lim, to create interdisciplinary performances that challenges not only gravity but the perception of audiences towards classical contemporary music.
