Fairy tales, they exist! If you are in the world where witches and trolls dance together every night, where trees talk and rabbits are as big as their owners, then you are in the world where this image comes from.
Imagine 2 wizards, one very sweet and one a little less friendly. They are not the best of friends. One day they get into a fight. They throw spells at each other. All kinds of spells (which are repelled nicely). Until... the super spell is cast... the spell that no wizard can resist...
I ... wILL ... ROCK you!!!
From that moment on, little by little, one of the wizards turns into a rock (because in fairyland, 'Rock' is the same as 'rock'). The process starts very fast, continues super slow. Wondering what that looks like? We bring the enchanted wizard to you! He's already part rock, but still human.
Can you undo the spell with a smile, a tear or something else?
The given price is based on a performance of 4 x 40 minutes. Leave your wishes in the request!
The living statue also has a name and is called Patrick van Horne. He is over 30 and a teacher by profession. This pedagogical 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 about 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 about. That seems easy, but it is subtle and dosed work. You want interaction with your audience, so you have to feel it perfectly."
In 2012 Patrick decided to quit as clown Patje, in order to be able 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 geek he won the Belgian championship in 2008 and in that same year he became 2nd at the BeNeLux championship in Lommel. 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.) ánd he obtained 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, mine past'. He was not only named the best Belgian statue, but also won the first prize of all participating statues.
