Movement, music and words. A fine theatrical experience combines all three. Nicholas Cannon has dedicated his career over the last two decades to the connection of these three forms of expression. Opera, Music Theatre and Physical theatre have been core elements in his work over the last twenty years of Nicholas’ international career, enjoyed most recently in his production of 'The Marriage of Figaro' for State Opera of South Australia. It opened to raucous laughter and critical acclaim. Nicholas has relied on his training at WAAPA (Perth) and Jacques Lecoq technique (Paris and Barcelona) to guide him as a performer, director, and teacher. ‘Tout bouge’ - all moves, stay flexible, open, present, and always seek for a truer centre for the audience experience.


Nicholas is passionate about Australian works, directing operas such as Ross Edwards’ “Christina’s World” and Graeme Koehne’s “Love Burns” - which also included a national Australian tour, as well as performing roles like Quick Lamb in George Palmer’s “Cloudstreet”.

Nicholas also values the importance of supporting the artistic ecology of the industry by producing Developing Professional Artists works, recently Puccini’s “Suor Angelica” through Mopoke Theatre Productions, which he is Artistic Director, and teaching regular theatre workshops for adults and schools.
