Tanya Mathias Secondary School Teacher / Support Worker (Human Trafficking)
“As an educator and human rights activist, I believe that theatrical workshops, such as those offered by The Natashas Project, should feature in every school and community organisation. I intend to partner with this group to support the reconciliation of survivors living in a safehouse in London. Human trafficking is a significant problem in the U.K., and this company’s creative approach to raising awareness and advocating for prevention and restoration is needed now more than ever.”
Christopher Gaul Head of Human Trafficking and Victims Slavery Support, Migrant Help
“The Natashas Project production was probably the most impacting representation of human trafficking I have witnessed in over six years of working within this particular sector. They have somehow managed to transcend culture, gender, class and religion to convey a sense of lost innocence, and why society should protect itself from those who wish to destroy people’s lives, hopes and dreams. A performance which needs to be seen in order to fully appreciate its brilliance.”

"The Natashas project is a powerful piece of work. It gently educates the viewer whilst moving you to want to learn more about the issue of sexual exploitation. I work with vulnerable children and young people and this is a unique resource that could be utilised to work with those most at risk in our society".

“I had the fortune to experience one of this groups extraordinary performances last year, unfortunately for me, I have to speak straight afterwards but was rendered speechless. Quite simply one of the most important pieces of theatre I'd seen for a long time.”
