The Cheese to My Macaroni: Dynamic Duos in 2016

We're just six weeks away from opening night! It's the most wonderful time of our Moist year... Booking is in full swing, so we can start feeding you some delicious tidbits about the artists performing at this year's festival. For our first artist post of the year, let's talk about some amazingly talented artists with a vaudevillian flair that will be returning to the Moisture Festival stage!

EDIT: Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, The Daredevil Chicken Club will not be able to precipitate with us this year. We hope to bring them back to Seattle in the future!

The Daredevil Chicken Club began one fateful day in 2001... well, maybe it was a combination of days and fates, but they decided to bring their unique brand of modern vaudevillian entertainment to the masses. Since then, they have performed at many festivals and events throughout the world, from Off Broadway theaters to Dubai malls.

Newlyweds Marc and Svetlana Buttersworth will present their "Honeymoon Cabaret" to inspire us all to believe in the magic of love through this tale of romance set to a delusional talent show. The Daredevil Chicken Club aims to "challenge and push the medium of live performance and search for the line between reality and absurdity, comedy and taboo." Do you know where that line is? Come to the Moisture Festival to find out! Show dates and times will be posted here in just a few weeks.

We will also welcome the return of Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. 2012 was the last time we saw them at the Palladium, and can't wait to see them again! Vaudeville East meets Vaudeville West when this family comes to town. Co-founders Stephanie Monseu and Keith Nelson joined together in 1995, and with a variety of outrageous talent, have brought an unparalleled combination of Vaudeville, Circus, Wild West, Burlesque, and Sideshow to venues and festivals worldwide. What you see depends on who they've gathered for the show, so keep your eyes and your mind open! Below is a video clip of the Cirkus in action. Their show dates and times will be posted here once our game of artist Tetris reaches its climax!
