Niki Shi


A devotee of symbols, magic and the beauty of the human body in motion, Niki Shi draws on her background in a diverse range of dance and performance vocabularies to produce soulful spectacles of light and shadow.

She has appeared as a solo artist and as part of musical act Ungus Ungus Ungus at innumerable events spanning the electronic music, circus, folk and transformational festival scenes across Australia and New Zealand, including Rainbow Serpent, Luminate, Seven Sisters, Subsonic and the Western Australian Circus Festival.

A refreshing swig of whimsy from a crystal tumbler of classic high style, topped off with a squeeze of fresh vintage-futurism. Expect Niki Shi’s time-hopping take on cabaret dance, plus manipulation antics with objects including cane, gloves and hoops.
