Spotlight: Nikki Rummer

Nikki Rummer is one half of acrobatic duo Nikki and JD – their brilliant show KNOT was one of the highlights of last year’s Edinburgh Festival and The Lowry presented it in The Studio as an alternative offering for Valentine’s Day.

Nikki is a real Lowry favourite – she’s also performed on the Lyric stage, in the Quays with Barely Methodical Troupe and even in the Gallery.

Circus artists really struggled with Lock Down because many of them found it difficult to keep fit or practise their skills – this was particularly true for Nikki who lives on a house boat with virtually no room for exercise.

This beautiful short film shows how creatively she was able to respond to her situation – and how versatile and resourceful she is as a performer.
