Natasha is currently back in London after two premiers in Berlin at the end of 2017.
She most recently opened a show for the KILN Theatre (formally known as the Tricycle) called A ColOURful World which was a devised performance by Willsden Green Young Persons Company and looked at the theme of modern day segregation.
She is currently in rehearsals for her new show at The Young Vic in London. This is a dance theatre immersive and interactive devised show for children with SEND (special education needs and disabilities) in response to the award winning musical, FUNHOME. The show will open in June and run for 2 weeks.
Natasha will be training the NYT Rep Company in June and directing the production of MACBETH in Autumn this year.
* UPDATE ON TRIGGER WARNING : There are plans afoot to develop Trigger Warning (Young Vic 2015, Shoreditch Town Hall 2017) a jet-black comedy exploring the politics behind trigger warnings in an age of information overload and non-stop media coverage of non-stop international tragedies.
Trigger Warning is a collaboration between the writer Marcelo Dos Santos and theatre maker/director Natasha Nixon and operates somewhere weird and fun between live art, dance, stand up and immersive theatre.
The piece is a pre-show disclaimer to a show that you will never see. It confronts the audience with the risks involved to their ‘persons, property and psychological well-being’ not to shock them but to open up a dialogue about what is safe and unsafe.
It asks if trigger warnings are in fact infantalising the population and removing their autonomy which begs the question, how far should we go to protect an audience from the horrors of ‘real life’?
By insulating ourselves to such an extent when do we lose our agency and when does it potentially become an act of censorship?
It is also a FUN night out for the whole family.
“That was SO brilliant, hilarious, subversive, witty, insane.” Melly Still, director
We are currently in talks with Brian at Camden People’s Theatre.
We are also looking for further support and project partners to develop the piece. If you are interested in partnering with us please contact Natasha via the Contact page on this website.
Last but not least, EUROTRASH, Natasha's company will be launching soon.
