Why you should listen
Playwright and performer Natasha Tsakos works in a brave new form of theater, where sound, computer-generated images and the performer move in sync to create a dreamlike yet sharply real stage environment. Within this space of total possibility, Tsakos muses on the deepest questions of the human soul.
A Swiss-born artist living in Miami, Tsakos has been a performer with Circ X and the Big Apple Circus, and writes, teaches and performs her own work in Miami and worldwide. She's the author of several plays and one-acts, a few collections of poetry and the cartoon “The Eskimans,” about a penguin and an Eskimo.
In her other life, she is Kokoff the Clown, who wanders the streets of Miami in a red nose (and who made a run for president in 2000).
What others say
