NIGEL TRIFFITT

In a previous life, Nigel was acknowledged as a leader in the field of visual theatre in Australia and internationally with shows that successfully toured to over forty countries, displaying a unique renegade talent. As a designer, devisor and director of his own shows, Nigel has an impressive track record over a career spanning thirty years. Arguably Nigel’s most successful project is Tap Dogs, which he co-created, designed and directed. Tap Dogs has become one of Australia’s greatest exports, having toured to over 250 cities worldwide. It’s still running, seventeen years later. Nigel’s talent led him on to other territories, from grand opera to rock ’n’ roll, from film to huge outdoor spectacles, circus, puppetry and dance, all of which combined to create his unique fusion of artforms. His productions have been seen at all the major arts festivals in the world. Commercial work included the phenomenally successful revival of Hair and The New Rocky Horror Show, which toured Australia for eight years, and Gumboots, made in South Africa. Nigel created, directed and designed the finale of the opening ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympics, screened to an international television audience of an estimated 3.5 billion viewers.

Knowing that it was all downhill after that, he retired.

Now he travels.
