LasQuirkus, Lasqueti Show at the hall will be on April 30
Ladies and Gentlemen, Children of All Ages, Step Right Up!
Bright eyed and bushy tailed, fresh from the back woods, backwards world of Lasqueti Island, “LasQuirkus” a troupe of 35 circus performers, musicians and freaks will be coming to Community Hall near you.
Bring out the whole family for a Vaudeville Variety Show featuring stilters, clowns, jugglers, musical slapstick, storytelling, hula-hoop spinning, dancing marionettes, giant puppets, general merriment, and a gorilla... or two?
The night will be hosted by Ring Master & Mistress of Ceremonies: the Infamous Jenny V and portable live soundtrack will be provided by our house band: The Bolting Brassicas. There will be plenty of home grown acts from the LasQuirkus Circus Works, plus performers from the greater Salish Sea.
Still need more? Dance on into the evening with a live set of west coast, high energy, raw brass gypsy funk-punk music from The Bolting Brassicas Marching Band. And cap it all off with Lasqueti's dj beatfarmer who will spin up world beats for your dancing pleasure.
Bring the kids, your juggling balls, dance shoes, and a sense of wonder.
Come one, Come all!

LasQuirkus is an inclusive, do-it-yourself, not for profit, completely volunteer based event aimed at having good clean (yet wacky and wild) fun for everyone from toddlers to great-grandparents and everyone in between. Inspired by long running The New Old Time Chautauqua, we're building our circus skills while inspiring, promoting and bringing together performers, communities and the arts around the Salish Sea.
We are looking for someone who would be interested in doing concession (not dinner, just snacks and non alcoholic beverages).
Let me know ASAP.
