People Of Performance Art #9: Amy Nicholson

Amy Nicholson is a puppeteer, musician and set designer for film and theatre. She also creates wonderful kids interactive theatre with Handmade Theatre.

I don’t usually write about the subjects that we are trying to convey in PoPA, but this one was a bit different. Amy wanted to try some surrealist poetry, and use that to give us the themes for the day. So we sat in Lee Rosy’s, drinking unusual teas, with odd names, and created weird poetry.

One of the phrases that came up was ‘ping pong ball’. That gave us our location for the day, as Das Kino, with it’s ping pong tables, seemed to be an obvious choice, and they kindly let us photograph the whole shoot there.

Here’s Amy with some of the poetry we created:
