Being a clown is more than wearing a smile, as shown by the graduate from the renowned circus school in Kiev, Semen Shuster, alias “Housch-ma-Housch”. In his sketches the diversity of his skills (juggling, magic, pantomime, beatbox, etc.) is subordinated only to the art of evoking laughter. Otherwise, the dialogue between the artist and the audience can become boring, unfunny, or simply not take place.
He is an observer with keen eyes, sensitive nostrils, deft hands…
“Housch-ma-Housch” – it’s a talent, a workmanship and a tremendous dedication.
His haircut is his trademark. His Housh-ma-Housch language is internationally intelligible. His nature ranges from the teasing to the childishly naive and is never nasty. His comic behaviour is taboo for all botox friends.
“Housch-ma-Housch” is to be paid for with laughter and applause. So, dare to have a few more laugh-wrinkles!
A mysterious man in a coat, a gentleman, finds a suitcase.
His nosiness is stronger than all good manners. The suitcase is opened with astonishing results: from it spring lively and aggressive hands. The man is assaulted by them slyly and unscrupulously – all in the name of saving the contents of the suitcase. Naturally the thieving gentleman has on his person a revolver…
How the struggle ends is not to be revealed. Just a hint: the protective coat turns out to be a justice of the peace.
A man, normal and rather reserved, but in whose soul there flicker flamenco-flames, resolves to break out of his straitjacket to go through his inner fire.
Like a Spaniard he reaches for the strings. But something impedes his daring: some sticky tape, a simple packet-sealer, tries to restrain the virtuoso’s volcanic temperament.
The winner of this sticky duel remains a secret. One must only know: Housch-ma-Housch is not a man to wave a white flag. He sees red…
A star is announced – a worthy scion of a memorable family tree and a famous magician family. He is able to do what his great-great-grandfather did, a feat with which his grandfather overwhelmed the hearts of ladies: he is able to appear from a small insignificant cloth five really big rabbits… Giant rabbits
Classically, out of the mist, there appears a majestic figure of a pompous magician. A sort of master of magic. With a gesture of magic, the maestro takes a little cloth out of his pocket.
The moment of magic is nigh! But the rabbits can be really naughty. With a treacherous bang they tumble at a wrong moment out of their hiding places. The occurred discomfiture does not bother a big master.
And then there is a real wonder…
This act is based on a difficult virtuoso work with the audience. Artful beatboxer chooses two worthy “amigos” from the audience. The rest of the spectators are not sitting idle, they are also involved into the game, virtually all become participants of it.
A joint performance of the the orchestra, created on the eyes of the audience, is preparing. Short, quick rehearsal and…
The musicians are trying, but can not avoid mistakes. In the end, to the general joy, the orchestra is playing the proposed music.
“Housch-ma-Housch” is presented to the audience in a rich variety of his scenic images. He is a strange waiter, obsessed with cleanness caretaker, electrician which knows nothing in electricity. But whoever he was, he was versatile professional who has at the same time surprising for cartoon character specialties.
He has a furious desire to express himself in different spheres of activity. The ridiculous fails – are the result of this work.
“Housch-ma-Housch” is a real bonus for the show!
