The Play

Chicago Shakespeare Theater takes a leading role in the inaugural Chicago International Puppet Theater Festival, presenting the US Premiere of this one-of-a-kind live performance event from the Netherlands. With remarkable focus and surprising theatricality, creator and performer Nick Steur artfully balances stones without glue or other manipulations. These astonishing stone sculptures are improvisations—each unique and celebrating something incredibly minimal, beautiful and breakable. Winner of the Edinburgh Fringe First award in 2013, Freeze! blurs the line between performer and audience as all collectively experience the unexplainable harmony that comes from balance and focus.
