Local SA Actress makes headlines on the New York Times!

A dream without a plan, is just a dream!!!


New York, United States of America – Our very own South African ex-Isidingo actress Nicola Jackman made the front cover of the New York Times, alongside German-born, social entrepreneur Toto (Torsten) Kremser… well it’s their own New York Times, but we’ll get to that in a second.

Nicola has teamed up with Toto, making headlines, as they take their Story Of Unconditional Love (SOUL) Circus and real tv docu-series “Thrivors – 21 days from survive to thrive” to the world!

Passionate leaders in their field, they’ve now also teamed with local Coza Productions CEO – Ryan Christian – to get the thrive message out – and show everyone that it’s possible to live in a way where all win and that it is possible to fulfil our brightest, boldest dreams.

Their two projects  “SOUL Circus” and the accompanying format Tv docu-series called “Thrivors” – inspires hope en masse, and encourages all to thrive and make a million dreams come true collectively.

Toto says: “In 2017 Nicola and I merged our shared dreams of a thriving world and nomadic festival of inspiring action – we felt called to make the biggest effect on the world that we could, we knew our biggest reach, would be through documenting – the SOUL Circus 21 days thrive experiences.

Along came Ryan Christian, with his work with charities like #hitpovertyforasix and productions and events – plus his shared passion for growing hope, he became our ideal production partner, and like that “Thrivors” – our amazing new real-tv-docu-series was conceived to follow the SOUL Circus adventure”.

Being on the front cover of the New York Times is a dream come true for them – and they admit it is in fact they who are making the headlines – “the image you see is in fact an image of a future memory we created” Toto says, with his cheshire cat-like grin, “the article is actually dated 20th October 2020”.

They took time to make the headline to keep them inspired to fulfill their dream; the same article is framed in their communal home in Kwa-Zulu Natal.

“Yes our dreams are bold,” says Nicola through giggles “and we are making it happen. SOUL Circus is leaving Cape Town and heading towards Cairo in October 2019, and we are inviting the world to take the journey with us”, she throws in another sneaky smile.

“To inspire and entertain – we have a handpicked mix of 8 leaders joining us, we will be mentoring and showcasing talents and supporting the dreams of the local good-doers in each community we visit,” she adds from the veranda of their abode.

It’s truly a bold manoeuvre and they’ve just announced the official location for Soul Circus’s first festival, looks like Swellendam is the setting for their first 21 days.

“This dream is huge, we wish to support the world to thrive, and everyone is invited to join us in the co-creation of a million dreams” Toto throws that in.

Their charm is contagious, clearly, they’re Greatest Showman fans, and you can’t resist smiling, even though they sneakily made us think they really were on the cover of the New York Times.

Let’s all ensure this travelling Story Of Unconditional Love (SOUL) Circus is shared with the world. It is already inspiring and we will continue to follow their story as they pop up in one community after the next, for their 21 day immersive thrive experiences. So behind your mission of enthusing hope and supporting the world to thrive.

Here’s their Kickstarter campaign.
