Recent work includes Papillon and the Dancing Cranes, for construction cranes (2018); forthcoming is a TV miniseries with the JACK quartet. With a focus on collage, collaboration and the ritual of life as art, Natacha’s compositions have been described as “a fairy tale for a fractured world” (FOCI Arts/Music We Care About).
