Basquette Quese

Arcata Playhouse 2018 Family Series presents French Clown Iman Izarazu

The series continues April 13 & 14 with Basquette Quese” (Basket Case) starring Santa Cruz based French performer Iman Lizarazu in a poetic tale about a clown trying to fall asleep. In her classic comedic battle she cooks up hilarious strategies to exhaust herself. The result is a rollicking whirlwind of bed-time antics – juggling pillow feathers – a Flamenco ballet while juggling seven rings – a pirate’s adventure atop a rola bola – and even a Tango that brings life to Max, her clothes hanger. 


Iman’s performance totally mesmerizes the audience. Her world renowned physical comedy, brilliant mime, dance and juggling deliver original and invigorating entertainment for audience of all ages.

Iman Lizarazu is an Eccentric Performer, combining a variety of clowning skills into one art form. This broad palette enables her to craft little stories, create problems within those stories, and then solve the problems in unexpected, unusual, and delightful ways.
