Zero Redefines Theater: Are You Ready to UP WAKE?

MIAMI BEACH, Fla., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Natasha Tsakos, Swiss conceptual director, performer and idea generator, now residing in Miami, is ready to UP WAKE globally.

With 19 collaborators applying their 3D animation, musical scoring, choreography, special effects expertise and skills to performance, one wakes up to a strikingly original moving new play: UP WAKE.

UP WAKE is a humane and tragic comedy following Zero, a toon character, throughout his musical day of dream and wake. More than a show, UP WAKE is a science project, where sound, computer generated images and performer are meticulously in-synch with each other, bringing a high-definition quality to the stage, fusing clowning, movement, dreams and technology. Tsakos integrates these hyper-real aesthetics into a magical journey of the human soul.

Tsakos, a charismatic, ambitious and multitalented figure in the scene, has been referred by the New Times as "Elegant and exquisitely graceful," "a female Bill Irwin" or like "Marcel Marceau on ecstasy" and nominated by Florida International Magazine as "a talent of the next generation."

Awarded "Best Dance Performance of the Year" by the Sunpost, UP WAKE is sure to sweep you off your feet. Beth Boone, executive and artistic director of Miami Light Project, one of South Florida's most prominent arts' organization, and co-commissioner, stated: "What makes this piece so beautiful, is the delicate balance between technology and pure humanity."

Forget all heavy sets and Broadway scenery. UP WAKE is light, portable and tour-ready. As Miami Herald acclaims "The Next Big Thing," UP WAKE innovates the theatre of today "with a startling use of animation, a magical briefcase, and a movement vocabulary ranging from MTV to avant-garde. Tsakos achieves the rarest of feats and makes a profound statement on the way we live now in an utterly original language." - Sunpost

With a sold-out run, UP WAKE held the World Premiere at The Adrienne Arsht Center in December 2006 (2nd largest Performing Arts Center in the Nation), followed by a run in Austin, TX and 3-City Mexico Tour.

Additionally, UP WAKE has been invited to TED 2009 (Technology, Entertainment and Design), a remarkable annual conference in Long Beach, CA, bringing together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers.
