Elizabeth works under the genre of performance as a performer, director, and solo artist. Her work draws from contemporary performance practices on notions of hybridity, interactivity and cross-disciplinary. Her training in performance-making draws from traditional Asian theatrical performing methods and contemporary practices.

She presented a performance installation exhibition, Un-written in Belgrade, Serbia in Real Presence 2008, and presented a performance cum lecture, The Karang Guni Man imagines Utopia, at the 15th Performance Studies International (2009) in Zagreb, Croatia.
