Welcome! I'm Nikki Kenward, BA (Hons) Dance, MA Directing Circus (Circomedia).

Winner of Emerging Later Life Artist/Performer award  

Advantages of Age Awards Ceremony 2023

I love making thought -provoking, highly visual, mesmerising physical theatre and circus. 


Dance, song, juggling, aerial work, text and acrobatics are all welcome in my creations as I seek to tell engaging stories through a combined arts approach.


A collaborative director by nature, I am passionate about sharing my vision with the performers and embracing their responses and creativity.


Representation in the arts is part of my motivation and purpose.

What my perfomers say...

"Nikki is a fabulous creative!"


“A fantastic experience. Eye-opening, valuable and enjoyable”


“Working with Nikki was an absolute joy! The show we created was a really safe place for me although it explored some of my most challenging life experiences.”

"I felt completely at ease and valued working with Nikki, who I found to be a highly organised visionary, with a purpose to create emotive and meaningful work. "

... about working with me

" Nikki was unfailingly empathic and upbeat - supportive, encouraging and focussed; always endorsing or finding new quirky and ingenious ideas – spinning a record on a pen, collaging on an unstable hanging board, making huge memory prompt cards, creating clouds above the ladder going nowhere, finding that a shocking pink tutu can be a ruff and a headdress too, using the golden hoop in so many ways to represent the symbolic circle that is circus."
