About the company

Nicole Henriksen

Nicole Henriksen is an award-nominated writer, performer, director, and producer, who’s toured solo works to cities all over Australia and the UK.

Following an intial exploration of comedy, Henriksen moved to theatre shows in 2016, following the critical and audience acclaim of her theatre debut, ‘Makin’ It Rain’, which has toured to eight cities in Australia and the UK. During this tour, ‘Makin’ It Rain’ garnered two award-nominations, several four and five star reviews, sold out shows, and standing ovations.

Now based in London, Henriksen’s multi-skilled background has allowed her to explore many art forms in such a rich cultural landscape. This has meant the theatre shows she creates don’t rely on traditional techniques to share their truths and explore larger themes. Rather, Henriksen’s style centres on creating a comfort with the audience to facilitate first-person storytelling through song, whimsy, physical comedy, dance, and so much more.
