If concentration is an artform, Nick Steur from the Netherlands is a master. With his hands, will, focus and skill, he achieves the improbable by balancing odd shaped rocks on top of one another. This is not trickery or illusion, but the culmination of one man pushing the limitations of possibility.
Steur uses the location to underscore his work and will perform in some of Tasmania’s most beautiful places. Without showmanship or bluster, he gives pause to the daily thoughts and preoccupations of his audience and places them gently in the present.
With variations in materials, place and potential distractions, each performance is unique in its own astonishing way.
Presented by Ten Days on the Island
Richard Jordan Productions & Theatre-aan-Zee in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth, Big in Belgium and Summerhall.
