Natasha Tsakos

Playwright and performer Natasha Tsakos creates theater where sound, computer-generated images and the performer address questions of the human soul. She has performed with Circ X and the Big Apple Circus, and writes, teaches and performs her own work worldwide. She is also the author of several plays, collections of poetry and the cartoon The Eskimans. Tsakos’ presentation features her Live 3D animated show UP WAKE, and the use of new technologies within performance to raise awareness and inspire the generation of today and tomorrow to think differently about Art, Science, and Humanity.

A featured event of the “Play Makes Life Worth Living” theme semester collaboration with support from the University Musical Society (UMS), the Center for Performing Arts Technology, and the Department of Theater & Drama.

Unless otherwise noted, all programs take place on Thursdays at 5:10 pm at the historic Michigan Theater, located at 603 E. Liberty Street in downtown Ann Arbor, and are free of charge and open to the public.
