Nikki de Roy also promoted projects that highlighted fashion and dance.
Nikki de Roy, who was a promoter of theater, dance and Panamanian fashion, passed away this Wednesday. For the theater director, Edwin Cedeño, the loss of Roy is an invitation to the new generations to follow her example.
“An important person in the development of musical theater has left us. This space that she leaves is an invitation to the new generations so that in some way they can take her example and get involved in this company in the world of theater”, highlighted Cedeño.
Nikki was a philanthropist, Cedeño added, because “when she produced theater she was concerned that people would have a good time.” An anecdote, the director recalled, was “the famous season closing parties, she did them at her house so that the entire cast would go to celebrate the theatrical season that she was producing,” she added.
Another legacy that Roy leaves behind is the fashion industry because “she was closely linked to the impulse of fashion, fashion as another form of art, another form of expression, and much is owed to her in that regard.”
When he managed Physical, he opened a ballet that “was a seedbed for several dancers and choreographers who live thanks to dance.”
