This living statue is a reminder of the time in the mines. This miner certainly makes the public stand still on the street! Book this statue now on ShowBird!

Miners, it stirs many minds. Time in the mine is often seen by ex-miners as "a great time," but there are also many dangers under the ground....

As an ode to these miners, years ago we developed the act "His past, mining past. My this act we won the Open Belgian Championship in 2015. Unfortunately, the act was removed from bookable images shortly after.

This act is based on a performance of 4 x 40 minutes. Please leave your specific wishes in the application!

The living statue also has a name and is called Patrick van Horne. He is past 30 and a teacher by profession. This educational background makes it easy for him to stand in front of groups and animate them. Patrick has been doing animation since 2000, first as a clown, later the statues and walking acts were added. Patrick on his motivation:

"Acting and animating is in your blood, it always gives a kick to bring a successful act. I regularly try out new ideas, which is how the living statue came into being. That seems easy, but it's more subtle and measured work. You want to interact with your audience, so you have to feel it perfectly."

In 2012, Patrick decided to quit as clown Patje in order to put enough energy into his living statues and walking acts. Since then, Patrick has proven that he has earned his spurs. With the living statue of the textile tutor he won the Belgian championship in 2008 and became 2nd at the BeNeLux championship in Lommel the same year. The act 'I wood be (a statue)' also won prizes: in April 2014 Patrick won with this act the festival Borne op z'n Best (Nl.) as well as a third place at the living statue festival in Tegelen (Nl.). After that I Wood be a statue became first in Den Bosch, in Maastricht and Belgian champion living statue 2014. As icing on the cake, I Wood Be a Statue was allowed to walk away with a 2nd prize at Worldstatues 2014 in Arnhem.

In 2015 Patrick succeeded himself as Belgian champion with the act 'His past, mining past'. He was not only named the best Belgian statue, but also won the first prize of all participating statues.
