"Intelligence is limited, but Stupidity is Infinite."
Embrace your inner stupidity and tap into poetic sources of humour and wonder through this ancient and irreverent art form! We'll explore physical comedy, improvisation, "clown logic" and the nature of comedy itself. Inspiration will be drawn from: circus, mime, theatre, cartoons, masks, vaudeville, and ritual clowning.
Cost: Suggested donation $10-$30 (nobody turned away for lack of funds)

Nikolas Strubbe is a multidisciplinary performing artist, comedian, and educator. His work straddles themes from poignant to absurd, and he can often be spotted in circuses, theaters, cabarets, and fringe festivals… Nikolas is passionate about theatre and circus as realms of exploration and innovation - where artists have the opportunity and obligation to push past the mundane in order to share meaningful and utterly unique experiences with each audience. He travels the world, researching techniques to enhance performance (including mask, mime, magic, sideshow, dance, burlesque, vaudeville, storytelling, motion capture, puppetry, and more), and loves to create laboratories for experimentation on and off stage. Hailing from San Francisco, Nikolas now calls Australia home, where he has spent the past year touring his solo show, "The Incredible Feelzo: Man of Moderate Talent."
