A bottle of whisky, a dozen shot glasses, knives, balls of crumpled paper, baited rat traps, and a performer who abandons himself to danger. A voluntary submission, a way of feeling alive in the deepest fibres of his being. With composure and solemnity, the skilled devotee of walking the line rewrites the rules. In quasi-religious silence, he alternatively tests his skill and downs draughts of alcohol, before throwing himself into a delicate balance over a forest of spiky blades. In Take Care of Yourself, Marc Oosterhoff explores the very essence of circus - risk - creating a psycho-physical thriller that makes the audience shiver with fear and pleasure in equal measure.

Created by Marc Oosterhoff in 2017, Cie MOOST is a company that mixes dance and circus, seeking a unique and non-elitist form of expression for the performing arts.
The company has a repertoire of productions that it performs:
Take Care of Yourself 2015, by and with Marc Oosterhoff, created at the Sevelin36 theatre in Lausanne.
Palette(s) 2017, by and with Cédric Gagneur and Marc Oosterhoff, created in Lausanne at La Manufacture.
Les Promesses de l’incertitude (The Promises of Uncertainty) 2019, by Marc Oosterhoff, with Marc Oosterhoff, Raphael Raccuia and Filipe Pascoal created in Geneva at L’Abri. Lab Rats 2021, by and with Marc Oosterhoff and Owen Winship created in Lausanne at the Sévelin36 theatre.
Natures mortes (Still lifes), is a production due to be created in 2022, by and with Camille Denkinger, Latifeh Hadji and Marc Oosterhoff.
