This statue is so in the situation, it suddenly becomes alive! Is it a book or is it real? This unique living statue makes visitors stop for a moment! A special experience at your event!

An intimate statue in the atmosphere of a library, it's something different again. You see a man sitting, hidden behind a large book. On the cover of the book, its main character preaches. The man reads, empathizes with the main character.

Suddenly the book sinks. A hat, a head and puzzled eyes.... You see that the main character has come to life. This act was tailor-made for a library, but can of course also be performed at other locations

This act is based on a performance of 4 x 40 minutes. Leave your specific 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 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 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.
