“You have to go, in Klagenfurt you will die.” – Mom
back again, OH BOY
Went hitchhiking only in jeeps, so I could jump off if someone wanted to kidnap me.
What the hell, let’s go to Paris. Pretty much just stayed in the hotel because I was too afraid to go out.
Fruitland, Indian Reservation in Washington State
I convinced my parents to send me to the USA as an exchange student. Met Aaron, my first love. After a year, he dumped me.
Wanted to be discovered on the street like Charlize Theron … didn’t work out.
Lived in a storage room and finished my degree.
My mom said, “You have to go, in Klagenfurt you will die.” I bought a one way ticket and had $200 in traveler checks and boarded the plane to JFK.
Nataša studied drama at Lee Strasberg Theater Institute under the tutelage of Robert Castle. She has appeared in several NYC theater productions, including Jean-Paul Sartre’s No Exit. New York Times editor Ken Jaworowski noted “Nataša brught a fresh spin to the role of the Valet, creating a seductive tease rather than a perfunctroy caretaker.”
In 2004, Nataša conceived her highly personal film, Weight which she cowrote, produced, and starred in. Weight screened at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival’s Short Film Corner. In 2009, Nataša produced the documentary Jobsite which screened at the Big Sky Film Festival, and in 2014, she cowrote, produced, and starred opposite Paul Calderon in the feature film, Grand Slammed.
As a stand-up comedian, Nataša has made numerous appearances at Broadway Comedy Club and Q.E.D.
In 2016, Nataša performed in Pirandello’s Six Characters in Search of an Author and John Nizzari’s Temporary Light at Dixon Place.
She is currently working on her one-woman show Awkward But Graceful, which recently ran at the Frigid New York Festival 2017 and has just recently been accepted into the San Diego International Fringe Festival, June 19 – July 2 2017 and the United Solo Festival 2017.
