I am a theatre-maker, poet, game designer/writer, producer, & occasional academic. A northerner in London, I used to run 'Performance in the Pub'. I speak at events. run workshops for theatres & lecture at universities about performance, games and participation. I work with people on digital & playful things. I am a DIY punk/emo fan (and very lazy record label co-founder), triathlete, activist, & have a veggie/vegan recipe blog called foodthatwemake which I struggle to update now London eats all my time. In general you can find me online as 'hannahnicklin'. Hey, look! --> my portfolio.
