Grace Nicol, choreographer, producer, and founder of performance platform, Womxn SRSLY.
Grace Nicol is a choreographer, producer and academic. Grace is the founder and Artistic Director of the performance platform, Womxn SRSLY. Womxn SRSLY champions unique and challenging performance through platforms and support networks for artists experiencing disadvantage due to the performing arts sector’s bias toward cis-male-led work. To develop this practice further, Grace provides mentoring for female artists and university lectures, most recently working with Falmouth University and on the MA programme at ArtEZ.
Grace’s choreographic work has been shown at The Place, CentrE17, The Yard, Guest Projects, Hackney Showroom, the V & A Museum and has toured nationally and internationally, winning a Stockholm Fringe Young STOFF Award in 2015. Grace is currently an Associate Artist at Dance Research Studio, member of Chisenhale Dance Space and completed her MA in Contemporary Dance at London Contemporary Dance School in 2018.
