At the beginning of her career, Natasha directed more traditional text led theatre, with a specialism in new writing and dramaturgy.

She later began to pursue ways to make theatre starting from the body and based in metaphorical association.

Her directing now crosses into dance theatre, devised, new writing, immersive, performance art, circus, musical theatre and community theatre.

She has a distinct style which can be found in her dark humour and commitment to broken expectations.

Words which are often used to describe Natasha's work include: uplifting, off beat, soulful, beautiful and absurdly funny.

Her work explores cultural identity, social constructs and the notion of outsiders.

She believes in celebrating what constitutes our universal value system.

She is highly visual and pursues well-crafted and authentic collaborative processes.
