Nata Varada (Varadashvili) was born on June 11, 1978 in Gavaza, Khvareli municipality. In 1994, she finished secondary school and entered Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University, the Faculty of Journalism. Since 1995, her works have been published in literary periodical editions. In 2012, her radio play “Focus-mocus-prr” was performed at the radio theatre (producer Zurab Kandelaki) where the actor, Zurab Kipshidze plays the leading role. The radio play depicts the life and creative works of French poet, Francois Villon. In addition, it criticizes allegorically the unfairness which reigned in Georgia for years, violation of prisoners’ rights and the humiliating policy which was imposed by the authorities in 2003-2012. Nata Varada’s creative works are multiform: pagan, with mythological and religious motifs.
