'Opulent in imagination and wonderful spectacle. 
As performers they are irresistible. With their strength and agility they seem capable of anything as they fuse talent, discipline and art, and then throw in a couple of extra somersaults.' The Times

Award-winning much-loved travelling theatre company Nicole & Martin cross the map from North to South to East to West in wooden wagons, pitching their magical White Tent, and telling tales by Grimm. 

From village greens to castle grounds, theatre lawns to arts festival sites, they welcome their enthusiastic and well-established audiences under a beautiful canvas and wooden structure, especially designed for their shows, built up in each location. Inside the renowned White Tent the world of theatre and fairy-tale come to life. Ancient tales take on a new guise with Nicole & Martin’s unmistakable story-telling style. Children and adults alike are taken on an unforgettable journey. Award-winning masterpiece shows combine narrative, music, song, dance, juggling, acrobatics, laughter, goosebumps and wild imagination for the whole family.

"Everyone who comes across them falls in love with their shows."   The Oxford Times

"Even teenagers in the audience were impressed enough by the antics on stage to stick their noses out from under their hooded tops…High praise indeed".  The Stage

"Fairytale, music, acrobatics and theatre come together in a magical collision...remarkable, tremendously physical, fun-packed show has a mesmeric effect on children and adults alike, transported into another world…simple…devastatingly effective and used with incredible imagination."  Inverness Courier

Nicole & Martin are an independent not-for-profit theatre company that creates, produces, performs and tours their own work, founded in 1999 by performers Nicole and Martin Gubler-Shranz out of a desire to create truly communal theatre without borders of location, age, language, money or background. Since those early days of pulling the caravan with a tractor, news of their shows quickly spread and they have garnered huge international popular and critical acclaim. Described as "an artistic experience of complete integrity" Nicole & Martin have gone on to win many awards and even more hearts.

'If there was an award for most beautiful venue then the White Tent would get it. It makes us feel happy to simply sit in it. The ultra-talented pair quickly have the tent ringing with giggles.... the audience enraptured….….a wonderfully minimalist piece with nothing unnecessary or out of place…. the theatrical equivalent of wooden baby toys and organic cotton. Truly enriching and nourishing stuff for all audiences.'
