As a child Nick Steur played a lot with pebbles. At a crucial time in his artistic career he rediscovered the material and created a mind-boggling stone sculpture performance. There’s no glue, cement or trick involved – it’s all about focus and “finding balance between your own force of will, and that of the stone”. The audience, fully captivated, loses track of time. Artist and audience share the same intense focus and experience. FREEZE! is an invitation to discover that true happiness lies in the luxury of concentrating on one thing at a time. Each performance is unique. Each and every balanced sculpture is improvised and in tune with the location and the audience.

Concept, Scenography and Execution : Nick Steur / Production : Nick Steur, Theater-aan-Zee, Richard Jordan and Soap Foundation

Nick Steur

Nick Steur is a Dutch performance and visual artist working primarily with stone, sand, steel and water. Since graduating in 2011 from the Maastricht Academy of Performing Arts, he has been invited to perform at numerous international festivals, as well as at the Middelheim Museum in Antwerp and the Kaaitheater in Brussels, among others. His work draws us back to the “here and now” and allows us to experience the little things in life we sometimes take for granted in a completely different way.
