Nicky visited the Western Academy of Beijing (WAB) for two days and was an absolute delight! Her flexibility to adapt her performances to suit ages 4 to 11 was remarkable. How Nicky is able to captivate the audience, without the use of props, lighting, costume, is nothing but CLEVER! She uses only her well-honed art and skill as an actress to make her voice and her body bring characters to life – in 3D-colour! Needless to say, her energy levels were tiring to admire. What was most comforting, was Nicky’s flexibility from the time we first made contact to prepare the program for her final performance at WAB. A true gem, Nicky brought storytelling to life and gave students an insight into how stories can perform. I have no hesitation, whatsoever, in recommending Nicky Bingham to entertain, educate and enlighten any school – in the world.

I certainly loved your spell-binding performance as you retold the story of The Selfish Giant with our Year 3 group. It was a captivating and emotionally rewarding roller coaster ride of interactive and beautifully enacted theater. To see the concern, delight, and surprise mirrored on the faces of the children was something very special – especially for someone who spends countless hours trying to unwrap the concepts of empathy to children who sometimes require more social-minded support. They were living the characters through you. I was in complete agreement with the comments from one of the overawed students who reflected that he “didn’t know storytelling could be so real but such fun too!” and I hope that you are able to continue offering equally magical experiences to as many children as possible. We will certainly feel fortunate if you’re able to return and treat the children to another theatrical masterclass again. Thanks again,

Our entire school community, students, and teachers were thoroughly enchanted and mesmerized by the storytelling wonder that is Nicky Bingham. With a mere twist of her body and an accent in her voice, she seamlessly changed from one character to another allowing a story to unfold not through fancy sets and costumes but through the true magic of storytelling. Her retelling of Roald Dahl’s classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory kept even the antsy audience members glued to their seats. By far, yourself .though, her transition into Grandpa Joe put grins on our faces each time she warped from some other character into the loveable old man. Nicky’s high-energy storytelling had the kids in stitches, the teachers fully engaged and us all wanting more. We can’t wait for the next time Nicky is in Hong Kong so she can come wow us with another tale.
