European Clown Extraordinaire Hacki Ginda Returning For Moisture Festival 2011

"If there was an international clowning competition, Hacki Ginda would take the cake. Or more likely, a pie in the face. Renowned for opening the Berlin venue Chameleon Variete', Ginda has become hugely successful entertaining crowds all around Europe, landing him the prestigious Golden Nose Award at Spain's clown festival."

Hacki Ginda, one of the early inspirational forces behind the creation of the Moisture Festival, will return in 2011. We just received word from the immigration folks that his visa has been approved. It seems Hacki invited Moisture Festival producer Ron W Bailey and his wife aerial phenom Cathy Sutherland to Berlin many years ago to perform in his night club the Chameleon. The cabaret and variete' scene in Berlin made such an impression on Ron and Cathy that they both dreamed of having a variete' festival right here in Seattle. The dream took wings with the first Moisture Festival in 2004.

One of Hacki's eclectic endeavors as of late has been with animations like the one you see above entitle The creation of a clown. Yes, it's Hacki in animated form up to his usual high-jinks. Hacki has become a favorite of Moisture Festival and North American fans over the years and he now likes to call Seattle and the Moisture Festival an official home away from home.
