Introduction Natalie Marlena Goodnow is a nationally recognized teatrista, teaching artist, and cultural activist from Austin, Texas. She writes, performs, and directs; she's been practicing some combination of those forms for seventeen years, and started teaching about and through them 8 years ago. She specializes in the creation of original works for the stage, as a solo performer and in collaboration with other performers and playwrights, both youth and adults. Goodnow’s work is dialogical in both its process and product, using performance as a tool with which to engage communities in conversation. Natalie explores the relationships between people and places, in terms of relationships to community, to the Earth, and to our own bodies.
