Performing Heartist

Nicola has a remarkable CV- which includes Isidingo (local South African soap opera) from 1998-2001 and many other local & international films. Nominated for best female actress in comedy TV Series (with ZAnews SA TV Comedy of 2014 & 2015), namely for her characterisations of Helen Zille, Sarah Palin, Lady Gaga & Charlize Theron.

“As a performer I am often on stage and in front of camera… I am an actress, an MC (as in Madame of Ceremonies), a story teller, a voice artist, singer and poet and all the work I do, I do with my full heart… never been one for small measures… hence the performing heartist title…

MAfrika is the fantastical story of a little girl from the land of MinXa, journeying to learn the remedy for the disease that steels feelings…

This amazing character and unique story-telling show – is now also a book and audiobook.  I originally launched the theatre show in 2012 – was nominated for a South African Naledi award in 2014 – for best show for youth and children.  I am very pleased to say that her story has currently reached over 15 000ppl around Africa, and is currently gathering international interest.


The LooneyVerse is an Ultraviolet experience of spoken-word, poetic guidance and humorous interactive theatre.

I launched LooneyVerse in 2017 and you can only see this remarkable character in the Pop Up Theatre (normally at festivals round Southern Africa).

I love accents and characters and animation – so I’m often in my home studio throwing out a voice for commercials, animation, games and or documentaries – for samples of my voice work – please click above.
