Artist Biography

When does Life become Art? Natan's interest lies in the performance of everyday life and how the artist mind and creative experience can aid us in living better lives. Primarily an educator, Natan is Teacher-As-Artist, approaching the classroom/studio as a laboratory of living, co-creating experiences with students that aim to deepen awareness and to open new possibilities for personal and worldwide change. A student of dance pioneer Anna Halprin's, he has been shaped by her approach to performance that merges the science of the moving body with felt experience, psychology, the natural environment, community, ritual, and the aesthetics of everyday activity.

Natan is on faculty at the Tamalpa Institute, an internationally recognized training program in movement-based expressive arts; teaches creative movement classes to children; and has taught movement workshops in a variety of settings. Natan studied ballet at the Joffrey School in New York City, received his BFA in Communication Design at Parsons the New School for Design, and received an MA in Education from Goddard College where he studied the intersection of somatics, creativity, and education.
