Writer’s Room Alum Natasha Tsakos: “It’s time to invent!”

As part of our 2015-16 Salon Season, Funding Arts Network invited Natasha Tsakos to speak at The Betsy – South Beach for an exclusive, members-only event. Described as “A Talent of the Next Generation”,  Tsakos is known for pioneering ways of integrating technology with live performance. She is a conceptual director, interactive designer, idea generator and performer from Geneva, Switzerland now residing in the US.

Tsakos recently spoke at the Google Performing Arts Summit in NYC, on how mobile could be integrated within Theatre.

“There is everything to rethink about storytelling. And it may not all work out. But we won’t know till we try it, test it, risk it, have fun with it. We’ve been stuck in a climate of rules and regulation, repeats and remakes… It’s time to invent!” – Natasha Tsakos
