Nicky has produced a huge range of projects by artists on the cutting edge of dance, performance, theatre and visual arts both nationally and internationally. Varying in scale and context these have ranged from touring and one-off commissions to site-specific, participatory and socially-engaged projects working in collaboration with theatres, galleries, festivals, schools and other educational institutions.
Artists she has or continues to work with include Rosemary Lee, Metis, la Ribot, Simon Vincenzi & Frank Bock, Gary Stevens, Tim Spooner, Anne Bean, Ackroyd & Harvey, Encounters, Ian Breakwell, Rose English, the Bow Gamelan and straybird.
