DESCRIBED AS A “Talent of the Next Generation”, Natasha Tsakos is known for pioneering ways of integrating technology with live performance. She is a show maker, conceptual director, interactive designer, and performer from Geneva, Switzerland now residing in the US. Natasha is the President of NTiD, inc: a production company dedicated to inventing possibilities through theatrical experiences. She was voted one of the State of Florida's "Power Players" by Florida International Magazine.

 

SHOW MAKER Tsakos has created and produced 9 multimedia shows, 10 commercial and independent short films, including 7 for the Ford Fiesta Movement and a music video "New Day" for e-music award winner April Henry. "New Day" was nominated "Best Pop Music Video" by the Indie Music Channel in 2018. A year prior to the launch of Project Natal, better known as Xbox’ Kinect, Natasha was brought on as a creative developer working at Digital Worlds Institute with engineers and Organic Motion Stage’s marker-less motion capture system developing an open source interactive motion software. The preliminary phases premiered at the eComm Conference in San Francisco in April 2010, and SIGGRAPH 2010. Tsakos is the creator of the 3D animated show UP WAKE, a four year commission inaugurating the Grand Opening of the Adrienne Arsht Center (formerly known as Miami Performing Arts Center) which brought her critical acclaim, CLIMAX which boldly opened the G20 Summit in Los Cabos, Mexico in 2012, Al Gore’ Climate Reality Project, the Art Directors Club Award Ceremony and the Luxembourg Sustainability Forum at the European Convention Center, OMEN a roller coaster through time integrating 3D projection mapping presented by Santillana for its smart school book initiative, ZO a full length interdisciplinary show comprised of 355 young artists from the Governor School for the Arts, in Norfolk, Virginia, two shows for the DISCOVERY CHANNEL premiering at Gotham Hall on Broadway in 2013 & for DISCOVERY Brazil 20th Anniversary in São Paolo in 2014, and QUARRY a bombastic production commissioned by ad agency CIRCUS for the Global building materials and aggregates company HOLCIM at Centro Banamex in Mexico City. Natasha was honored to open the TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL Imagination Talks with her piece "FACE FORWARD: A Manifesto for the Future", and was the official host of the all-day summit presenting some of today’s most influential and groundbreaking minds. In 2016, Natasha was honored with a Recognition Award from the conservatory from which she graduated, New World School of the Arts. The award was the first recognition award in the college history.

 

PLAYWRIGHT While the majority of her productions are universal and devoid of words, Natasha is an avid wordsmith. She has written 12 original works together with “The Eskimans”, a full length cartoon for Nickelodeon, and is the published author of 2 books: “The Lost Architect” and “COLOURS” a nonsense available on Amazon and iTunes as a paperback, eBook and audiobook which she narrates. COLOURS won the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Digital Award.

 

PERFORMER Natasha is a classically trained actor and has dubbed over 900 TV shows and feature films, was exposed to over 300,000 people with 82 performances scheduled as part of the Adrienne Arsht Center first Theatre group “Urban Disturbance”, was the lead performer of Beautifully Bizarre troupe Circ X with over 10,000 scheduled events and 2 US tours, performed with Cirque du Soleil for the Super Bowl Opening Ceremony in 2007, entertained celebrities such as Pharrell Williams, Swedish House Mafia, Tiësto, the Miami Heat and performed at the Coachella Festival with Red Bull. Her work has been commissioned by Nickelodeon, MTVi, Miami Art Museum, Miami Light Project, Adrienne Arsht Center, Discovery Channel, Art Basel, and has been featured on The Travel Channel, HBO, MTV, and the BBC.

 

ACTIVATOR Distinguished by the New Times as “a female Bill Irwin, or Marcel Marceau on ecstasy”, Natasha worked with the Big Apple Circus (NYC) as a Doctor clown at the Miami Children Hospital for 2 years, and traveled to Haiti in 2012 bringing joy in camps and orphanages under the umbrella of non-governmental organization EcoWorks International. An advocator of the environment, she developed a Green campaign through her character ZERO and has worked with Greenpeace, the Environmental Coalition of Miami Beach and ethical avant-garde fashion designer Luis Valenzuela.  She is also a company member of Octavio Campos’ Hybrid Dance Theatre CAMPOSITION, last featured in the anti-bullying multimedia performance “Intention Intervention” premiering at the Frank Gehry New World Center. Natasha was honored to become the Arts Twenty Thirty Ambassador to the UN SDSN Youth in 2016.

 

SPEAKER Natasha believes in activating innovation and out of the box thinking through creativity and playfulness. A charismatic presenter, she has spoken at TED, the United Nations, Google, La Ciudad de Las Ideas, NOVUS Summit, European Investment Bank, Kellogg Innovation Network, YPO, ADIDAS 'Calling All Creators', IBM Summit, SIME Stockholm, ISMAR International Symposium of Mixed & Augmented Reality, Penny Stamp Series at the University of Michigan, the National Theater Conference, TEDxBroadway, TEDxPuraVidaJoven, TEDxSanDiego amongst others. 

PLAYFUL FUTURIST Natasha was a nominee in 2012 and finalist in 2013 for the World Technology Awards presented in association with CNN, Time, Fortune Magazine, and Kurzweil Ai; a selected judge for Ciudad de Las Ideas’ Gifted Citizen social entrepreneurship competition in 2015, the keynote speaker for Gifted Citizen Day and Ciudad de Las Ideas 2016, celebrating Pitch@Palace founded by His Royal Highness, Prince Andrew, The Duke of York. Natasha is a winner of SINGULARITY UNIVERSITY’s Global Impact Competition, and was awarded a Google grant to attend the Graduate Studies Program at NASA Research Park in Silicon Valley, which focuses on accelerating technologies to address Humanity's greatest challenges. She is the Founder Emeritus of SingularityU Miami Chapter, an advisor of Exponential Creativity Ventures, an evergreen fund investing in startups that invent technology to maximize humanity's creative potential, on the board of directors of TEDxBroadway and helps creatives and arts organizations reimagine their work and future.

 

VISIONEER Natasha is currently developing a new experience HUMANODE, a blueprint for digitizing and gamifying entertainment to generate and maximize collective action. HUMANODE blends real time data, cinematic techniques, gaming, mobile and distributed ledger technology with storytelling panache. 

 

Natasha is in the pursuit of a theater that does not exist, and narratives that address our new mythology. She is passionate about the language of interactivity between the imaginary and the real, and creating extraordinary experiences on Earth and beyond. Contact her if you wish to book her for a speaking engagement, invest in her work or take her to space! Yes, space, really.
