IVAN COYOTE & Friends
Apr 13 @ 7:30 pm

IVAN COYOTE & Friends bring Story-telling and Music to King’s Theatre

Yukon-born story-teller Ivan Coyote is the award-winning author of eleven books, creator of four short films, and has released three albums that combine storytelling with music. Based in Vancouver, Coyote is something of a legend out west as a seasoned stage performer and collaborator who challenges gender norms.

For more than twenty years Coyote has been traveling the world telling semi-autobiographical stories that are in equal measure heartbreaking and hilarious. On tour with three musicians — high-energy drummer and percussionist Sally Zori, base player Pebbles Willekes, and trumpet player Alison Gorman — their show is “part anthem, part campfire story, and part instructions for the dismantling of the gender stories we tell ourselves and each other.”

The Globe and Mail newspaper called Coyote “a natural-born storyteller”, the Ottawa Xpress once said that “Coyote is to Canadian literature what kd lang is to country music: a beautifully odd fixture”, and Quills Magazine says Ivan has a “distinctive and persuasive voice, a flawless sense of pacing, and an impeccable sense of story.”

Ivan often grapples with the complex and intensely personal issues of gender identity in their work, as well as topics such as family, class, social justice and queer liberation, but always with a generous heart, a quick wit, and the nuanced and finely-honed timing of a gifted raconteur. Ivan’s stories remind of us of our own fallible and imperfect humanity while at the same time inspiring us to change the world.

Ivan Coyote was born and raised in a large Irish Catholic family in Whitehorse, Yukon, and learned the craft of storytelling while gathered around their grandmother’s kitchen table on long northern winter nights.  Coyote’s work tackles the difficult subjects of family, class, gender identity, and social justice, always with the silver tongue of a master storyteller, an eye for the beauty found in what makes us all human, and an ear for the hilarity of life and love.

Through a new King’s Theatre initiative called “FrontRowYouth”, students can attend the show at no cost (please call the theatre for details). The show will appeal to people of all ages and persuasions who are interested in an authentic, fresh and dynamic live theatre experience. For tickets, contact King’s Theatre at 902-532-7704 or go to www.kingstheatre.ca.

British comedian James Mullinger has taken Canada by storm. Sold out shows across the country, appearances on CBC’s The Debaters, movies, TV shows, festivals, awards, magazines, stand up specials – since moving to Atlantic Canada four years ago he’s done it all.

James tours extensively to packed houses across Canada and England. A big budget movie had been made about his early years in stand up (starring actors from Twilight, Downton Abbey and Notting Hill and comedians such as Jimmy Carr, Gilbert Gottfried, Mike Ward and Pete Zedlacher). It was described by NME as the “funniest film of the year,” “unmissable” by GQ Magazine and “essential viewing. A funny, realistic look at what it takes to become a stand up comedian,” by the Montreal Times. Watch the trailer here.

James is one of the Canada’s biggest cheerleaders. He loves it here and spends his time promoting it across the world and raising money for charities and non-profits. James has raised more than $100,000 for Canadian charities. He has also become one of Canada’s top comics, being nominated for both a Just For Laughs comedy award and a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live Show.

TOMÁŠ KUBÍNEK – MIRACLE MAN
Jul 28 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Theatre is thrilled to present the internationally acclaimed vaudevillian performer TOMÁŠ KUBÍNEK. Magician, mime, illusionist, theatrical stuntman, Tomáš Kubínek makes his audiences laugh out of sheer wonder and delight.  He follows a noble tradition of physical comedy.

 

A collision of theatre and music-hall, his exuberant one-man show is equal parts comic brilliance, virtuosic vaudeville and irresistible charm. He’s known as a COMIC GENIUS, VIRTUOSO VAUDEVILLIAN, and all-round charmer who gives audiences an utterly joyous experience they’ll remember for a lifetime.

After a sold-out run on Broadway, The New York Times lauded his work as “Absolutely expert!

His latest creation, TOMÁŠ KUBÍNEK – MIRACLE MAN, is a rip-roaring revival of strong-man stunts, couples-counseling, snake-healings, and mass-hypnosis that leaves audiences dazed, beaming and in love with life once again.

*The performance, intended for an adult audience, is an utterly original mix of comedy, circus, and vaudeville, this is unlike anything you have ever seen at King’s Theatre. TOMÁŠ KUBÍNEK is a phenomenon not to be missed.*

“Masterfully played comedy…That secret mixture of DARING, TALENT, AND UTTER FOOLISHNESS…” – Santa Fe Reporter

“HILARIOUS and enormously talented.” -TimeOut, London

 “The audience sits transfixed, gleefully awaiting each new moment of MAD BRILLIANCE.”
— Badische Zeitung, Germany

 

Tomáš Kubínek was born in Prague and at the age of 3 was smuggled out of the country by his parents to escape the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia. After two months in a refugee camp in Austria, the Kubínek family was granted asylum in Canada and it was there, in St. Catharines, Ontario, that Tomáš, age 5, witnessed his first circus. He became passionately interested in clowns, circus, theater and magic and his perplexed yet well-adjusted parents took him to see every show that passed through town. At age 9 he presented his first performance before a circle of elderly magicians. By age 13 he had an agent. He performed in coffee-houses between folk-music acts and while still in his teens, he made his circus debut with a Brazilian clown duo as the rear half of a two-person horse. His tireless experiments in the art of live performance led to the creation of his award-winning solo stage shows which play to capacity crowds at theaters, international arts festivals, and in television broadcasts throughout the world.
