ABOUT: 

Natasha Harrison is a freelance Movement Director, Choreographer and Lecturer from Folkestone whose work focusses on the context, vision and nature of the theatrical piece in question, supporting the production by translating the world of the piece through the art of movement. Working closely with directors to achieve movement with a visceral and organic edge, Natasha's role in theatre is work in conjunction with the actors to develop the physicality of their characters in space, refine the movement moments of the show and explore the overall movement language of the piece. 

As an artist Natasha is continually inspired by physical theatre companies such as Gecko, Frantic Assembly and Lost Dog for their physical storytelling, encouraging boldness in Natasha's movement choices and enabling her to explore the communicative power of the body. As well as being a Movement Director, Natasha has keen eye for devising, developing and refining new movement and this helps shape her vision when taking on the role of Choreographer.

 Natasha is an Associate Artist for Red Ladder Theatre Company and an Educational Associate Practitioner for the RSC.
