"Hilariously Weird & Sweetly Deranged"

Nikolas Strubbe

Shares art across genres, disciplines, & borders.

I believe that art should inspire, entertain, surprise, and embrace audiences of all kinds. To do this, I combine my experience in: theatre, circus arts, comedy, improv, storytelling, puppetry, immersive entertainment, education, humanitarian work, and visual media. This diverse approach helps me connect with audiences in authentic and magical ways. I have been fortunate to perform thousands of shows around the world since 2005, and have taught hundreds of workshops to students of all ages and skill levels. I am currently based in Switzerland, completing my Master of Arts in Physical Theatre & Teatro di Figura (Puppetry) at Accademia Teatro Dimitri.

A thorough CV can be found below, including performance history, arts companies, and prior training.

Reviews:
"Deftly conjures a forgotten era of show business." - Great Scott
"Melancholic, breathtaking, and one of a kind." - Patron
"This is a sensitive, deeply-risky, and personally challenging show. It is theatre with soul, circus with gentleness, and sensitivity with, well, blockhead. Go. Just go and see reality with all the boring bits cut out." John Campbell, Circus Avalon

SHOW

Boxlife

This dark comedy combines puppetry and clown into a non-verbal tale of companionship and grief. Join three naïve yet mischievous characters as they battle against emptiness. Their shared imaginations create strange new worlds – filling the void with mail-order parcels, games, and unexpected magic. Come along on a bizarre journey of life, death, and cardboard boxes.
