The Kamishibai is an ancient, originally Indian storytelling theatre. Armed with a bicycle and lots of storytelling records, a man comes to the children and anyone who wants to be enchanted by a tempting story.

We used this theater as a base for Mr. Kamishibai. For the occasion, we look slightly less Western and come by bicycle. The theater is full of stories (adapted to theme, age or client demand) that can even be customized

And we tell ... not just like that, but with passion. It will be enjoyment for storyteller and audience, as together we let what happens in the story guide us. Are you ready for the multimedia-less adventure? We are!

The price of this act is based on a performance of 4 x 40 minutes.

Mr. Kamishibai also has a name and his name is Patrick van Horne. He is past 30 and a teacher by profession. That 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 on 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.
