50 Shades of Play Workshop w/ Della Moustachella

No workshop scheduled, but contact Della to be added to her email list for when her workshop becomes available again.

Location:
The Cirque Lab;
Instructor:
Della Moustachella, 360.421.7827, http://www.dellamoustachella.com, Della@BellinghamCircusGuild.com
Physical theater-esque fun with Della Moustachella, including elements of Improv, performance, and clown.

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), Aitor Basauri (England), and more.
