A combination of clowning, physical theater, comedy, improv, and circus skills is how someone might describe what Della Moustachella does, but not Della herself. Instead, she's more likely to fake trip over something before she gives you a big hug and then asks you what YOU are up to, glazing over her experiences performing all over the northwest, teaching classes on play, and her ongoing studies with physical comedy/clown instructors such as Avner the Eccentric (Maine), Phillipe Gaullier (France), David MacMurray-Smith (Canada), Deanna Flyscher (Los Angeles), and more.
From 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM each Monday, the Cirque Lab, 1401 6th Ave. in Fairhaven (Home of the Bellingham Circus Guild), will be full of focused activity, determined effort, and the sound of laughter.
The Lab is full of equipment and resources to provoke and inspire exploration and creation. Jason Quick M.A., professional performing artist and inspirational speaker, will instruct, facilitate, and demonstrate to keep the days packed with joyful learning and creativity.
Cost for the Playshop is a sliding fee $12 to $15 per week.
