CoProducteurs: Le Quartz Scéne Nationale, Blueline, Le Tandem, Théâtre Sénart
Tour Plan 2016 – 2017
At the center of the astral constellation, the whale, shines intensely a red star, somewhat like a comet, baptized Mira Ceti, the wonderful. A metaphor depicting Mick’s relationship to his internal clown, Moby Mick is a succession of acts held by him alone. With Harpoon, line, and accesories, our sailor, hunter hunted, is swallowed whole in the enormous belly of this immense leviathan. One’s comfortability inside the belly of a glorious whale, ebbs and flows not unlike the sea that contains them both. Some days are better than others, but there may be a limit to his patience. Five star hotel or pungent emptiness, It’s simply a matter of perspective.Will he ever escape? Or rather, will he spend the rest of his days the figment of someone’s imagination, a living myth; dreaming of life as it was before? Only time will tell, and only the sea of stories knows his fate.

Circus Syzygy is a collective endeavor functioning entirely off of consensus , and building itself from the pure sweat and grit of its only employees…..the artists. After six weeks of creation Syzygy presented 10 shows in the SANCA performance space, and then also made a feature presentation in this years Seattle based variety venue “Moisture Festival.” Circus Syzygy will return back to rehearsals for the second phase of their creation in Toulouse , France at La Grainerie.

MickHolsbeke01mCircus Monti “En Bloc”
January 10 – October 30th , 2011

After ten months , 47 cities, and 277 shows, the 27th season of Circus Monti in Switzerland, sadly comes to a close. Mick was one of 12 artists who performed on stage, constructed the circus tent, towed caravans, and delired publics day in and day out. Rico Grand Jean was this year’s director, and the show which was entitled “En Bloc”, was inspired by the influence of street arts , such as parkour, breakdance, and extreme sports, in circus. Being the only clown in this years show Mick was happy to pull from his background in acrobatic bicycle, and ten years as an amateur skateboarder to poke fun at the culture of cool that surrounds us today. Mick sends his warmest regards and deepest thanks to the Muntwyler.
