Artist/choreographer Jennifer Sherburn partnered with NGP to create eleven new dance performances in eleven months, each at a different venue. NGP produced every performance from the ground up, including booking and staffing the venues, lighting, sound and projection design, stage management, marketing and advertising, box office and front of house management, and bar/concessions. Team NGP helped bring Jennifer’s choreography to life in venues such as Live Oak Brewery, Sertodo Copper, Community First Village (A housing community for the homeless), an abandoned restaurant, and Carson Creek Ranch.
The Hotel Vanya; Or A Metaphysical Paradigm at the End of Everythingness
This new play by Tim Braun is loosely based on Chekov’s Uncle Vanya, and follows a group of characters occupying a once beautiful hotel that is now set for demolition. NGP scouted and created a pop-up venue specifically for the run of this production, taking place at an old storefront in East Austin that was under construction (during the run!) that eventually became a youth hostile. Once again, NGP produced the show from the ground up, including lighting, sound and projection design, stage management, marketing and advertising, box office and front of house management, and bar/concessions.
The annual festival and conference unites queer artists, audiences and scholars from around the world through the presentation of film, dance, theater, performance art, etc. NGP was hired for full production set up at The Vortex Theater, providing management of all technical needs for the festival, hiring and managing crew, sourcing and acquiring equipment, and execution of each performance.
1000 Forest Gorillas in Kansas
Highly-acclaimed danger/choreographer, Heloise Gold, and NGP, along with a heavy-hitting Austin ensemble, presented this exciting performance that explored evolution and communication through movement and lighting. In addition to producing the show at Salvage Vanguard Theater, NGP co-choreographed as well. The show was awarded Best Choreography at the Central Texas Excellence in Theater awards, and NGP garnered a Best Lighting Design award by Austin Critic’s Table. The show was so successful that it was remounted the following year.
“This short evening with Heloise Gold and Natalie George was an Easter egg basket of surprises.” – Michael Meigs, CTX Live Theater
Potential (Line Upon Line Percussion Ensemble with collaborator Ros Nasky)
This multi-body dance performance took place in numerous locations around Mansfield Dam at Lake Travis as part of Fusebox Festival, with live music by sought-after percussion group, Line Upon Line. NGP provided lighting design for the dam itself and surrounding areas, in addition to production management for Line Upon Line. It was a dam good time.
