“Rummer’s athletic tumbling is neatly showcased as if she is constantly saying to the men: anything you can do, I can do better”

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian (on Kin)

Unbroken is the debut solo performance by physical theatre and circus artist, Nikki Rummer.

One bittersweet Christmas, three generations of the Rummer family are summoned home for one last gathering. Told through the eyes of a daughter, Unbroken weaves fragments of memories into the body of one performer as a dark, previously buried secret finds its way to the surface.

Combining her talent for storytelling and her unique movement language inspired by her acrobatics, gymnastics and capoeira practice, Nikki tells a very personal story with universal resonance...

Contains references to sexual abuse and domestic violence.

“Magnificently choreographed and blindingly performed, full of wisdom and wit, segueing seamlessly from expressive dance to awesome balances”

The List (on Knot)

“It’s not often that the words circus performers write and deliver match the strength, commitment and skill of their movement”

The Scotsman (on Knot)
