As a researcher, she specialises in the African roots of the classic and popular Argentinean Dances, publishing articles in magazines and studying with professionals from different areas: ethno-musicology, social education, visual arts, films and with elders of the popular wisdom, scientific knowledge and traditional lore. From 2009 she has been studying astrology with Miro della Bitta and Maria Poggioli, disciples of Eugenio Carutti (Casa XI) in Buenos Aires.

Nissa Nishikawa‘s multidisciplinary practice encompasses experimental choreographies, which incorporates structures of story telling, theatrical devices and sculptural setting. Her continuous research of dance origin, mysticism and craft is placed in relationship with performance, painting and film while patterning and mythologising community and action. Nishikawa spent her formative years working agriculturally in the mountains of Yamanashi, Japan with Dance Resources on Earth. She studied Fine Arts at Concordia University (Montreal), Stage Arts at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and holds an MA in Performance from Goldsmiths. Her practice with the dervish turning from the Mevlevi lineage is ongoing. Her most recent workshops have been held at Chisholme Institute (Scottish Borders), The Victoria and Albert Museum (London) and The American Legation (Tangier).
