NICOLA PILKINGTON is a Johannesburg-based theatre-maker, filmmaker, installation artist and educator. Her original work includes short experimental documentary, "Double Negative/Writing the City" (2014, recently screened at the 2018 VIDEOEX Experimental Film & Video Festival in Zurich, Switzerland); one-woman theatre show, "Tracks" (2018, as the commissioned work for the 2017 So Solo Festival at Wits Theatre); and the dance video and performance installation "Rebirth of IQHAWE" (2017, at the Wits Art Museum).
Her most notable participation in film projects include working with award-winning production companies, Urucu Media and Yellowbone Entertainment, on "Inxeba" (2017) and "Sew the Winter to my Skin" (2018) and "Knuckle City" (2019), respectively. And she directed NTC’s 2016 production of William Shakespeare’s "Coriolanus" which toured to over 120 schools around South Africa (including Swaziland), reaching up to 9 500 learners.
Her current mission is toward experimenting and discovering innovative ways in which the live performance medium can hybridize with film; be it a simulcast theatre performance interacting in two places at once; or a 360 degree film/immersive theatre project. [...watch this space]
