Her practice is informed by research that centres on making connections with people that spark innovative exchange and interdisciplinary encounters to provoke dialogue, action, and reflection between the performer and spectator nexus. Tammy draws on her own lived experience of sexual violence to interrogate and engage with confronting systemic global socio-political problems. Her work probes abuses of power, culture and contemporary issues such as human rights violations, gender violence, conflict and trauma.
