Natasha Higdon

Natasha Higdon was born in Ipswich in 1986, where she first developed her passion for theatre from a young age. Moving to Oxford, she began her degree in Psychology with Performing Arts in the Community - developing her passion for community theatre and site specific programmes which allowed her to perform Slam Poetry at Grendon prison, Buckinghamshire. Natasha began collaborating with artists to participate in innovative projects that supported children’s engagement in theatre, music and art - working as an Outreach worker for Oxford County Council. Shortly after completing her degree she became a drama teacher, writing and directing plays for her local community, including ‘The Fear That Feeds’, which was performed as part of Suffolk’s Bin a Blade anti-knife campaign. Natasha continued her career in London, working as a Learning Area Manager for Drama in the Community and a Head of Drama. In more recent years, Natasha has worked as an author and CPD Lead for We Teach Drama, writing also for Mousetrap to create educational resources for ‘The Bob Marley Musical.’ Since moving to Brighton, she continues to teach whilst working as a freelance practitioner. She specialises in physical theatre, ensemble work, berkoffian theatre and theatre of the absurd. Natasha currently works for the Windmill Young Actors, Interact and as a drama freelancer/director in residence. For this year’s Brighton Fringe Festival Natasha directed her adapted version of ‘Blood Wedding’ at BHASVIC College, which received ‘Outstanding Youth Theatre.’ Natasha is the Artistic Director of ‘The Writer’s Mark’, which celebrates writers from our past. She is currently directing a performance based on Franz Kafka’s life and works – to be performed at Fabrica in February 2024. Instagram: beatsofthelaine

Groundhog Day - Saying goodbye to old memories, whilst finding new ones. A beautiful physical representation on our ability to accept who we truly are! Get down to Club Purgatorio!


Weinachter is an interchangeable chameleon: not just a dancer, but a rare performer who can do it all! Her style and execution of ideas paints a beautiful memory of her idiosyncratic talents in exploring the beginning and end of life. Stunningly poignant.


Enthralling. Poignant. Unforgettable. Two cameras. One couple. A beautiful dance between the private and public world of this turbulent couple. Not to be missed!
