WHO WE ARE
Nixx is a graduate artist of the University of Chichester, with a Masters in Performance Art (Theatre Collectives). Her masters work was selected by the University to be performed in San Francisco in the summer of 2013 where she also worked with local Bay Area artists for 2 weeks devising new work.
Nixx gained a first class BA Honours Dance degree in 2012 and upon graduating was awarded the Hayes Prize of Excellence in the Visual and Performing Arts.
Nixx has attended workshops lead by members of DV8 physical theatre, Cai Tomas, Victoria Fox and worked with successful artists Marisa Zanotti, Matteo Fargion and the late Nigel Charnock. She has directed her own workshops using these influences to construct quirky, original and entertaining sessions for students in the south of England.
Nixx founded Box Tracy Theatre Dance Company with fellow dancer Val Watkinson in 2011.
Susie is a Performance Artist based in Chichester,
West Sussex. She joined Box Tracy in April 2014 as producer
and dramaturge, before joining Nixx on stage performing in
Of Course My Shirt Was Worn For You at Camden fringe that
Susie studied alongside Nixx at the University of Chichester
for her MA in Performance (Theatre) after completing a
BA in Performing Arts.
Before joining Box Tracy Susie wrote solo contemporary
theatre performances. She is passionate about creating work that challenges people's notions of what theatre is. Susie creates big, bold and beautiful work and specialises in autobiography and autobiology: using neurology and physiology to explore how the body in performance tells its own story.
Susie performed her MA show Bare: 8 Shades Red in San Francisco before taking the work to London for the Camden Fringe Festival.
Susie has worked with a number of artists, writers and directors including Bryony Kimmings, Stacy Makishi, Scottee, Simon Vincenzi, Peggy Shaw, Guy Dartnell, Josie Melia and Brian Lobel.
In October 2013 Susie was granted studio time at The Point Theatre, Eastleigh, to continue writing and researching for new work. In August 2012 her short play Carcass was chosen to be shown in the Minvera Theatre, Chichester. It was performed by members of the Chichester Festival Youth Theatre and was directed by Dale Rooks. The play was written as part of the Chichester Young Playwirghts scheme.
