Nyx Dorian Calder

A vibrant and fresh-faced actor originally hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Nyx is an artist driven by a love for language, community and social justice.
As a transgender and non-binary actor, and a proud member of the LGBTI+ community, Nyx is always searching for new means to connect themselves to writing and performance that reflect the true diversity of all lived experience.
Nyx is particularly interested in nuanced explorations of personal identity that can take an air of lightness, thoughtfulness and mirth. Their current ambitions centre around continuing to develop their own craft on stage and on screen, while finding the time and space to help nurture Sydney’s next generation of gender-diverse actors and artists.
Nyx’s other passions include writing, stand-up comedy and plinking away at their ukulele.
