Koqm, the world premiere of a new theatrical piece by L’nu/Mi’kmaw storyteller shalan joudry

 

Koqm is a journey through time and land to experience the voices of fictional L’nu (Mi’kmaw) women. Throughout the course of the show we hear and meet the women who might have spoken and walked through one area of forest over centuries. Guided by the strength of an ancient tree (“koqm”), the women’s voices share with us their personal stories of grief, humour and resiliency through a unique theatrical performance that includes story-telling, poetry, dance and song.

  • Written and performed by: shalan joudry
  • Director: Ken Schwartz
  • Mask & Movement: Ann-Marie Kerr
  • Production: Two Planks and a Passion Theatre, Nestuita’si Storytelling, and El’tuek Qokom
  • Movement consultants: Susanne Chui & Sarah Prosper
  • Lighting Design: MacKenzie Cornfield
  • Graphics: design by MacKenzie Cornfield, drawing by Milidow Joudry-Martel (after Mi’kmaw pertroglyphs)

Shalan is an oral storyteller, poet, actor, playwright, podcast producer, as well as a cultural interpreter from L’sitkuk (Bear River) Mi’kmaq Community. Shalan’s unique voice and use of Mi’kmaq/L’nu and English words brings language and art together.

In 2019, King’s Theatre presented the stage premier of shalan’s two-person play Elaputiek to a sold-out house. We are thrilled to welcome her back to our stage with this new production.

Doors open 45 minutes before showtime.

The Annapolis District Drama Group is back on stage!!

Having taken, of necessity, a sojourn into page-to-screen screenplay productions over the past 18 months of pandemic, the time now seems right for us to be able to venture back onto the boards of King’s Theatre. Carefully, and with an abundance of caution, just as we have right through these trying times.

And for our inspiration we needed to look no further than the Complete Works of our much esteemed home-grown Bard, Wayne Currie, whose anthology of Short Plays, eponymously entitled “A Dash of Currie”, furnished us with all the scripts for this production.

When the Call for Actors went out we had envisioned that six 10-minute plays would be performed. Such was the enthusiasm and willingness of our troupe to be involved that we found we had to ‘stretch the envelope’, and so we bring to you SEVEN plays instead!

And with the influx of new folks moving to the area over the past months we are delighted to welcome new faces to our Cast, who are thrilled to be bringing their skills and experience to our local stage, acting alongside many of our familiar and much-loved regulars.

With Simon Bonnington at the helm as Producer/Director, and an innovative minimalist set that utilises King’s Theatre’s brand-new stage-technology, we have a show that’s filled to the brim with mirth & hilarity, as well as some thought-provoking moments, prompting you to ponder what is really important in life…

MELODY A. JOHNSON presents PERSON OF INTEREST
Nov 21 @ 7:30 pm
MELODY A. JOHNSON presents PERSON OF INTEREST
A comedy drama about a good neighbour gone bad… a shocking tale of neighourhood warfare told with candour and an edgy sense of fun.
 

King’s audiences will remember Melody A.Johnson for her award-winning play Miss Caledonia.

 

 “Person of Interest”, is a topical tale, about a good, law-abiding citizen like me who hoped to volunteer and so applied for a police background check. It was at that point when I discovered I was a Person of Interest…courtesy of some bad neighbours next door. It was their final act of retaliation.

 Debuting in 2018, Person of Interest has been delighting audiences across the country.  Those who enjoy the wave of stand-alone storytelling like CBC’s Vinyl Café, and National Public Radio’s The Moth podcasts, will crave this yarn spinning, edgy, comic tale.

“Melody A. Johnson proves once again, she is the kook supreme of the Canadian stage…I truly would pay money to see Johnson read the phone book…” — Richard Ouzonian, The Toronto Star

“Melody A. Johnson is a unique talent, a slyly hilarious performer, and a very likeable presence on stage without ever seeming anything less than genuine.” — David Mann, Evergreen Cultural Centre, Coquitlam B.C.

“Melody tells the story so beautifully that there are moments when she has the audience completely on her side even while in the same breath, we’re questioning her sanity.” —– Danny Harvey, The Rose Theatre, Brampton, Ont.

Seating is full capacity. Proof of full vaccination and face masks are required.

King’s Theatre is committed to making live performances accessible to all audiences. If the ticket price is a barrier, bursaries are available. Please get in touch by contacting the Box Office: boxoffice@kingstheatre.ca or 902-532-7704.
