NIKKI CALONGE

I practice creativity, healthful living, rigorous self-investigation, fierce cooperation, and joy in lifelong learning.

That’s how I perform.

 
 

 

WHat they’re saying

PRESS + REVIEWS

"At the height of Burke's epic net narrative... we are faced with a seemingly insignificant sound, uttered casually by the wildly mesmerizing Nikki Calonge."

Ariel Stess, Culturebot on PIONEERS!#GOFORTH

 

"The deadpan-hilarious Ms. Calonge — a director of ANIMALS...— is one of the best things about 'Chase.'"

Laura Collins-Hughes, New York Times on  Chase: What Matters Most?

 

"The first character we meet is played virtuosically by ANIMALS core member, Nikki Calonge, a rigorous performer with intense physical commitment. Her striking entrance sets an impressive precedent..."

Jackie Danziger, Stagebuddy.com on Chase: What Matters Most?

 

"...a tough cookie in the most adorable way..."

Katarina Hybenova, Bushwick Daily on In the Pony Palace/FOOTBALL

 

"Strong work from a committed ensemble—particularly a heartbreaking Nikki Calonge—boosts us from amused disbelief […] into bewildered admiration and delight."

Helen Shaw, TimeOut NY on A Play on War
