Nicole Wolcott

Triskelion Arts Presents Nicole Wolcott. Luggage Lost comes alive in a harrowingly dull and necessary place - an airport. In this liminal space stories meet and individual narratives merge while suspended in an interminable and absurdist delay - each player in a hurry with no departure, no arrival. This evening of dancetheater invites both comedy and pathos as the mountains of luggage become a collective burden, transforming from walls to weapons to dance partners carrying what was once private, now unceremoniously exposed. Luggage Lost wonders what we choose to bring with us and what we can live without, memories, waiting, TSA, and too many lost suitcases.


“Nicole Wolcott is ‘One of today’s finest dance comedians and a knockout dancer,’” - Claudia La Rocco, The New York Times

“The Marvelous Ms. Wolcott”-  The New York Times

Nicole Wolcott’s PaperPieces is/are all over the place literally and emotionally, but that is somehow perfect.” - Quinn Baston,
