Mission Statement

Natasa Trifan Performance Group [NTPG] was founded in 1999 (NYC) by Natasa Trifan to create and explore innovative conceptual performances and to enhance the audience's experiences through social thought-provoking themes and inclusive productions. [NTPG] investigates new approaches to multimedia performance using dance, image theater, theatre d'object, and video technology. Our current explorations involve the intensive research and development of a new performance language that will mentally and emotionally involve the contemporary audience. Our choreographer, Natasa Trifan says: "My work aims to reflect the multiple layers of our contemporary society. It defines and re-defines the 21st-century human being, with its complex facets of sociological behavior, technological fascination, political activity or oppression, and above all, our tremendous power to continuously adapt to the world and at the same time to transcendent it." (Interview from "Romanian artists in NYC," a film documentary produced by Romanian National Television.)


The performance group performed in New York at venues including the Citicorp Theater at Alvin Ailey Studios Joan Weill Center for Dance part of International Dance Festival, the Symphony Space, the Here Theater, the Fringe Festival, the Howl Festival, the Chashama theater, Dance Space's work in progress series, the d.u.m.b.o Festival, the Flea Theater, Merkin Hall at Kaufman Center, the Construction Company, White Wave Festival, The Theater for The New City, F:T:H: festival and at the Merce Cunningham Studio. Recently [NTPG]'s work is being presented at the XIII Almada Dance Festival in Portugal. Trifan's choreography for the Metamorphosis by Black Moon Theater was seen in Germany and England at the Chipping Norton Theater and the Bath Theater. In October 2007 the company represented the United States at the Danzalborde International Festival in Valparaiso/Chile. In September 2008 the company is invited in Venezuela, Russia and Brazil.
