A piece of 2 - balancing human sized rocks
Nick Steur graduated from the Theatre Academy in Maastricht (NL) in 2011 and became known for his performative in-situ installations with very basic materials such as stone, sand or water. In his new performance A PIECE OF 2 - balancing human sized rocks, he zooms in on his earlier work FREEZE. The original small stones that are meticulously balanced by hand will be replaced by two monumental rocks, balanced with the use of a crane manipulated by several performers. With this shift in scale, not only the magic of the balancing rocks becomes revealed, but also the relation between simple physical actions and the collective use of tools. During Working Title Situation #01, Nick Steur will present a performative scale model of his upcoming creation.
