Mick Holsbeke

Performance Program Director

Mick Holsbeke’s unique style of clowning, exuberant physical acting, and circus expertise made its debut on the streets of south Florida in 2001. It was later deepened at the School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts in Seattle from 2004-2006, and then refined at the National Circus School of Canada from 2006-2009. Mick has been entertaining audiences in various projects internationally ever since.

In addition  to being a recipient of the Comedy Prize from the Festival Sol y Circo, and both the Cirque Éloize, and the Telmondis Prize from the Festival Mondiale du Cirque de Demain, Mick has also performed with companies such as the 7 Fingers, G.O.P. Variete Shows, Circle of Eleven, Palazzo Colombino of Freiburg, Circus Monti, Cirque Plume, Compagnie 14:20, for the 2016 French biopic “Chocolat,” and was most recently produced by three French national theaters, plus Blueline Productions in his solo theater production “Moby Mick.”

Versatile, comic, and out of control, Mick works as a performer, coach, and clown in projects throughout the world.
