Of the Earth

February to March 2020

Part of the National Theatre Wales’ Located Residencies, a unique opportunity to spend research and development time looking at new ideas for performance, that are embedded in a location or community.

Of the Earth questions how we might preserve a sense of positive Welsh identity as we progress to more ecologically sustainable modes of living.

As a spoken word artist, particularly of interest to Natasha are the rhythm and rhetoric of protest movements. Her project draws associations between the UK Miners’ Strikes of 1984-1985 and today’s Global Climate Strikes.
