LasQuirkus Extends the Tour!

LasQuirkus! The Lasqueti Circus!

Ladies and Gentlemen, children of all ages, Step Right Up!

LasQuirkus Extends Their Tour!
Old-Time Vaudeville Circus Rolls in to Cumberland and onto Gabriola Island!
Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, coming to you from the back woods, backwards world of Lasqueti Island is LasQuirkus, the Lasqueti Circus. Fresh from the wild success of tours that have hit the shores of communities in Cortes, Denman, Quadra and Erriington, we're bringing it on through the Big Island to the people of Cumberland and Gabriola Island!

We are a troupe of 35 circus performers, musicians and freaks who are rolling into into the Valley for one night only at the Fallen Alders Hall near Cumberland on May 27th, 2011. at 7 pm.
The next night at the Gabriola Community Hall on Saturday, May 28th, 2011 at 7 pm.

Bring out the whole family for a Vaudeville variety show featuring stilters, clowns, ballerinas, jugglers, musical slapstick, storytelling, hula-hoop spinning, dancing marionettes, Eastern European superstars, giant puppets, and a gorilla... or two? In addition to these home-grown acts from the LasQuirkus Circus Works we will also be featuring local acts, so keep an eye out for members of your own community who may be harbouring secret circus skills that will manifest on stage...
Guiding you through this night of marauding merriment will be the Infamous Red the Ringmaster, accompanied by the live soundtrack of our in-house band The Bolting Brassicas. Still need more? After the two-act vaudeville show, stay late and 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. But wait, there's more! Cap it all off with the world beats of Lasqueti's dj beatfarmer.
Bring the kids, your juggling balls, dance shoes, and a sense of whimsy. And don't be late, because we pack the hall! Come one, Come all!

Doors 6:30, Show 7pm, Dance to follow.
