Living Statues

The Grumpy Old Man

What a terrible person, always cranky... Yet there is humor behind his moodiness: his nasty character is very entertaining for the audience! This living statue is unequalled: a hilarious one-man show!

The Contented Man

The Contented Man is pleased with the good around him, he enjoys the small things in life. Nothing life throws at him can break his composure. Life is Beautiful!
The Contented Man as a Living Statue looks very lifelike. Only the smoke from his pipe reveals that this is a Living Statue and not an actual bronze statue. The Contented Man is a "feelgood" statue, and exudes an atmosphere of calm and serenity. The image embodies positivity and is impressive in its simplicity. 

Angel of Serenity

This Angel immediately takes you into higher realms...
With her heavenly smile she is a gift from heaven...
She caresses and blesses you with her soft feathers and brings you into ecstasy.
The atmosphere is good,
Love flows...

This statue is supported with subtle angel music.

Disciples

Two ladies dressed in orange as disciples on golden pedestals... This is a combination of stand-still movement theatre and dance... The disciples are part of the meditating Buddha lounge but can also be used as a separate performance... Usually they stand still on their pedestal or they make beautiful and graceful dance-like movements but every now and then they jump off their pedestals and they mix with the guests and stick a suitable bundi on the forehead of the guests or they spoil the guests with the beautiful sound of the Tibetan singing bowls...

Don Piedro

Erasmus

Desiderius Erasmus, born in Rotterdam or Gouda on probably 28 October 1469 and passed away in Basel on 12 July 1536 was a Dutch Augustinian monk, humanist, writer and philosopher. 
Erasmus is best known for the Praise of Folly and the Enchiridion in which he explains his ideas about what Christianity really should mean to people. The Praise of Foolishness is a satire of all kinds of wrongdoing of his time, in which he lets the allegorical Foolishness say all kinds of things that the Church forbade him to say.

Flamenco...

This is a combination between stand-still movement theatre and dance...
The act is performed by a dancer that has been trained according to the Flamenco tradition and supported by a cajon player... 
The figures are motionless on the pedestals...
A guitar chord sounds and the dancer comes to life...
She moves, she dances, and a question-answer game takes place between the footwork of the dancer and the cajon player...
Through the beautiful movements they play the audience...
Then both figures come to a halt again and on the final chord of the guitar they fix again in a graceful pose... This cycle repeats itself every ten minutes...
So they always work with seven minutes of standstill and three minutes of movement, dance, music and interaction...

Frozen

(abstract ice sculpture)
Because of the shape of the pedestal, the costume and the absolute discipline of the performer, this image cannot be distinguished from a real statue...
The figure on the pedestal stands motionless in the beginning...
Every now and then she comes alive with her dance-like movements... Frozen is icy, still, abstract, fresh, graceful and an absolute delight to the eye... Frozen can be booked in a large and a small version...

Jheronimus Bosch

Jheronimus Bosch ('s-Hertogenbosch, circa 1450 - August 1516), also calle Hiëronymus or Jeroen, was a Dutch painter of the Northern Renaissance. His real name was Jeroen Anthoniszoon van Aken. Although he was internationally renowed through his life, and even kings and dukes bought his paintings, little is known about him.

In 1930 a statue of Jheronimus Bosch was unveiled on the Bossche Markt. The statue was made in 1929 by the sculptor August Falise. He used a drawing from Receuil d'Arras as a model. It is assumed that this is a portrait of Bosch. During the unveiling, Jeroen Bosch was called "le faizeur de Dyables". 

Copper Lady

The Copper Lady has found a seat on a bench in the sculpture garden and cherishes a silent love for Hendrik Jan the Gardener.

L'Ombre

These tree-like creatures speak to everyone's imagination and fantasy through the beautiful alternation of stillness and movement. 
In the beginning, the tree-like creatures stand motionless. When they slowly come to life, a game of beautiful slow motion and non-verbal interaction with each other and the audience is created. 

Ma Dame

These gracefully decorated torsos have a sparkling appearance. Initially they cannot be distinguished from real statues. When they come to life with their graceful movements and frivolous play, they marvel everyone who will pass them by and see them.

Just somewhere at the entrance for the reception of guests... On a stage setting with decorative elements... 
Or as an animation between guests... A perfect eye-catcher for trade fairs and/or product presentations and of course also usable for, for example, guiding guests from A to B... In the stage version, various decorative elements can be used and guests can take a look inside the living room of Mr and Mrs de Wit (Mr and Mrs the White)... When they come to life, a comically mime-like game of phased movement patterns is created in a story line... The 20-minute performance can be deployed up to four times during a four-hour daysession... The whole is supported by appropriate lounge music... 

Le Clochard

This man is the only living and talkative inhabitant of the sculpture garden and often lies down on a bench to dream about the new world that he believes will come. He sometimes suddenly awakens and then a huge stream of words will roll over his tongue. 
He talks to the statues but they won't reply to him. He sings into the sky but the birds fly away. Sometimes he seems to be just as eager to fly away but he soon resigns himself to his thoughts about life and much more.
