Play the Fool Festival presents A Basquette Quese on September 28 & 30 at the L'Unitheatre, 8627 91 St.

An International Eccentric Performer’s story of a clown who confronts her insomnia with a series of bedtime antics.

Performed by: Iman Lizarazu
Written by: Julie Goell & Iman Lizarazu
Directed by: Avner the Eccentric & Julie Goell

A Basquette Quese is an all-ages poetic tale about a clown in a war to fall asleep. In a classic comedic battle, Iman, as a Commedia dell’Arte, Pierrot-type character, confronts her insomnia with a host of strategies to exhaust herself. The result is a series of bedtime antics, including pillow feather juggling, a Flamenco ballet, a pirate's adventure atop a rola bola, and a Tango that brings her clothes hanger to life. The show includes physical comedy, mime, dance, and juggling. Iman engages her audience in a safe, playful, and joyful environment. She has performed A Basquette Quese worldwide in over 30 venues and festivals since 2007.

Tickets are $20 for Adults and $16 for Students and Seniors 65+, plus applicable fees.
