As social creatures, we need to actively foster healthy environments for that interaction to take place, especially as our connectedness grows exponentially via the internet. The principles found in Dance and Theatre, when applied to other social environments, can be an invaluable asset in establishing and nurturing a strong sense of Community.
To entertain is to use your talents to lift the spirits of others. For many that is solely an occupation, but for this CollaborAction company member and performance artist, it is a philosophy. Whether teaching, directing, performing, or just being, the infectious positivity prevails.
His motto: "Dance Every Day."
NCard's ongoing mission is
to create engaging social experiences that
lift the heart, open the soul, and stir the mind.
Designing customized interactive experiences for niche audiences since 2007: In addition to 11 small-scale events self-produced, NCard has also devised more than 20 events with CollaborAction(.org) since 2012, including 4 special events for The Art Institute of Chicago, as Director. He specializes in choreography.
In a 90 minute team-building exercise, CollaborAction led an international group of 80 pharmaceutical industry professionals in the creation of a dance video, at Resolution Media. Nathanael and 3 other company members co-devised the choreography, and in small groups the participants learned it all in 15 minutes. Each group performed it 3 times on green screen, and then everyone danced together in the finale.
NCard is currently at work on a self-publishing project. Don & Sancho's Quixotic Cookbook is more than just a book of recipes; it is a storyteller's exploration of one of humanity's greatest and most enduring virtues: hospitality.
