News

If you are looking for the very latest Nutkhut news, you’ve come to the right place.

If you’re a seasoned stilt walker who loves playing exciting and energetic characters, we’d love to hear from you.

We’re expanding our team of Princesses, Maharajah’s and DJ’s and are looking for great character performers with oodles of enthusiasm.

We are looking for experienced stilt walkers but your own stilts and costumes are not required just a passion for outdoor performance and a love of characterisation.

Please send your CV, Showreel and covering letter to emma@nutkhut.co.uk no later than 31st August.

Dynamic Diaspora’s

Continuing Nutkhut’s interest in how migration and history have developed contemporary culture, through art, poetry and performance, co-Artistic Director Ajay Chhabra travelled to California in July 2018.

He met with artists, policy makers and programmers in Sacramento and attended the launch of the 40th San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival at City Hall, San Francisco.

Poet Laureate Kim Shuck read poems about dance with an eye to the way that traditional Cherokee Stomp Dance is used to re-balance the world. As a Tsalagi (Cherokee)/Euro-American poet, author, weaver, she has drawn from Southeastern Native American culture and tradition as well as contemporary urban Indian life.

We’re off to Oslo!

We’re looking forward to heading back to the always spectacular Oslo Mela with our fabulous Princess & Maharajah Stilt Walkers this year!  We’ll be part of the official opening ceremony on 17th August and will be out and about throughout the whole festival until the 19th August.

Celebrating Thamesmead

We’ve long had an association with Thamesmead and felt very privileged to be included in their 50th Anniversary celebrations at Southmere Lake with Swyron joining over 5,500 community members who joined the party and took part in the festivities.
