Housch-Ma-Housch (Semen Schuster)
Semen Schuster (whose clown character is Housch-Ma-Housch) is an eccentric clown who has been wowing audiences since graduating from the Circus School of Kiev. A winner of a number of prizes (including the Grockland “Golden Grock”) at the 26th Festival Mondial de Cirque de Demain and the Silver Lion at the China Wuqiao International Circus Festival, Housch combines juggling, magic, dance, mime, and a whole lot of charm to create circus and cabaret acts that are inventive and memorable.
His character is slightly mischievous, but mostly innocent. With a wide-eyed stare and his wacky hair-style (bald on top, wings coming out the sides) and his mumbling grammelot, he’s a cross between the inbred hemophiliac Russian prince who has been stranded on an island and Zippy the pinhead, with Edward Scissorhands’ sense of social grace. He’s charming, bizarre, and eccentric– well worth seeing if you have the opportunity.
