Nick Steur (Nijmegen, 1982) is a Dutch performance/visual artist who works principally with raw, pure materials such as stone, sand, steel and water. Steur graduated from the Maastricht Academy of Performing Arts in 2011.

As a theatre-maker and performer, he has developed a unique artistic language that can be described as poetic, earthy, intuitive and mystical. He creates situations that are grounded in a timeless reality and dictated by concrete natural laws; a reality that has been all but forgotten in our complex, highly technologized lives.

His theatrical productions mix elements of installation and visual art. The collective experience is an equally essential element.

Steur reduces the space and the materials he works with to their essence: a process of deconstruction that allows him to expose the complexity of our existence through great simplicity.

Nick Steur won the 'Laureaat Jong Theater' award at TAZ #2011 and the 'Fringe First Award' at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh (2013).
