At Ptara, we work with people from all backgrounds. We love the dance of Ukraine, the hip-hop of the streets of LA and New York, the traditional Hispanic dances from Iberian peninsula and all over Latin America, as well as the Waltzes of Europe, barn dances of the old south and sock hops of middle America. And the arts of all continents interest to us, from music to theatre to painting and so on, and yes, we really love film.

As we are based in Europe, we create art with a European perspective. As Josephine Baker the dancer and Terrence the playwright became European when they came to live here, eventually, so did we. We hope to one day add to European culture in the way they did, wherever we came from originally.

A wise man once said that being born in a stable doesn’t make you a horse. Similarly, just because someone was born here, that doesn’t make them one of us. If someone rejects European culture, then they cease to be European, no matter how European their ancestors were and no matter where they were born. Birth is a short, involuntary act, so the geography of your birth has nothing to do with who you are. You are who you choose to be, not where your circumstances put you.

We don’t seek out quotas, rather we seek out a variety of perspectives from people who share similar goals.

Don’t try to be something you’re not, just because other people label you that way.  Show them who you are.

For some, this comes easy.  Others benefit from being armed by preparation.  We can help you prepare with our pre-production services.  If you’d like our help in explaining your vision to the world, or in planning it so that it gets you where you want to be, give us a call.
