NICK DEROO

Actor | Theatre Maker | Writer

Coming season 2022-2023 is going to be an exciting one. I’ve been selected for the 3Package Deal program.
For one year I’m getting funding for my work, coaching and help to find a studio/workplace in Amsterdam.
This means I can focus more on creating my own work and finding new ways of telling stories.

Thanks to Amsterdams Fond voor de Kunsten, Theater Bellevue and Academie voor Theater

With Tom de Ronde, we are making a new performance with our collective DeRonde/Deroo.
TRANSIT will première september 2023 and will continue the search for immersive, iconoclastic, filmic physical theater

For another project I’ll research what it means to be an individual in a collective and what collective identity is in today’s society.
‘I want to bite your flesh and see if it bleeds’ is an energetic drumming show that has the feeling of a concert.
Starring Jethro Cooke, Anna Bentivegna, Anton van der Sluis and myself; and in collaboration with light designer Robert Groenewald

This year I’ll also start soft research for my first solo ‘We need to talk about AIDS’.
A physical monologue in an 80’s like atmosphere telling the story about the AIDS pandemic and how it changed the way we think about sex /diseases/pandemics in our lives.


For Amsterdam Fringe Festival September 2021,
Tom de Ronde and I created the physical performance After The Echo.

We won the Best of Fringe Award with this performance
and will tour in 2023 in the Netherlands and Belgium with this performance. For now the last performances are in The Hague and Knokke
