Duo delivers an evening of music, slapstick and dance vaudeville style
Vaudeville — in the form of the two dynamic performers who call themselves Duo Finelli — will come to the Blue Heron at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
Vashon-based Molly Shannon and Luz Gaxiola met when they were students at the San Francisco Clown Conservatory in 2005. The duo first performed as founding members of Circus Finelli at festivals, theaters and music venues across the United States, Mexico and Europe. Then in 2012, Shannon and Gaxiola started their own comedy team as Duo Finelli, performing slapstick, music and dance, and drawing their inspiration from the traditions of American vaudeville and European circus.
For their Vashon Allied Arts New Works premiere, the duo will present a classic one-act vaudevillian comedy, showcasing often ridiculous displays of dexterity, glorifying mundane moments of everyday folly. With the live sounds of the accordion, trombone and ukulele, Duo Finelli promises to create a world of music, humor and dance, where the laws of logic and physics bend to the will of comedy.
Tickets are $10 for VAA members, students and seniors or $14 for general admission and are for sale at VAA or www.vashonalliedarts.org.
