Nicole met Martin at the Scuola Teatro Dimitri (a theatre school run by Swiss clown and mime Dimitri) in the Italian part of Switzerland. From 1997 to 1999, Nicole and Martin were members of the Compagnia Dimitri. In 1999 they founded their own independent theatre company, Nicole & Martin, with its wooden-framed big top, wooden caravans and red towing vehicles, which have progressed from tractors upwards.

Since then, Nicole & Martin have travelled throughout the world performing their plays. In the 19 years from 1999 to 2018 we performed 2617  times in 513 venues and in 12 different countries. The shows are translated and performed in 8 different languages. In 2002 Nicole and Martin married one another and now have 2 children.
