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.

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.
