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.

XARA CHORAL THEATRE: RINGS THROUGH WATER
Sep 21 @ 7:30 pm

Rings Through Water is new creation that uses ethereal choral singing, contemporary and traditional Indigenous dance, along with powerful text and theatrical presentation, to tell three short stories about water.  

It’s a collaboration between five artists – three Indigenous and two Settlers. Their desire to overcome their own embodied prejudices, privilege, and pain is central to their artistic process and to the beautiful narratives of this show.

Depending on its form, water has the capacity to amplify sound, distort it, or mute it; how do we do the same as we navigate our relationship with this precious resource and one another? Together they speak for water, lift up the voices of its protectors, and amplify the voices of the missing and murdered  Indigenous women who have met their end in it. They also offer a reconciliation-based model for Indigenous and Settler collaboration.

ELAPULTIEK – a play by shalan joudry
Oct 6 @ 7:30 pm

Elapultiek (ehl-ah-bool-dee-egg) – “we are looking towards” – is a 2-person play written by Bear River (L’sitkuk) playwright shalan joudry. It marks the first time Two Planks and a Passion Theatre has commissioned a Mi’kmaq playwright from Nova Scotia to create a new work for the company. The show was a huge success as an outdoor performance last Summer. Now, Elapultiek begins its journey as a touring indoor production.

In the course of the play, two biologists (one white, one Mi’kamq) are thrown together each night to count the swifts, and in the process challenge each others’ way of seeing. It’s a beautiful piece that is funny and moving, exploring reconciliation on a personal level.

King’s Theatre debuts the stage version of this play. Because the play was designed to be performed “in the round”, King’s Theatre will be seating patrons directly on the stage.


ABOUT THE PLAY

In the time of Idle No More, a young Mi’kmaw drum singer and a Euro-Nova Scotian biologist meet at dusk each day to count a population of endangered Chimney Swifts. As the relationship deepens over time, they struggle with their differing views of the world. Each ‘count night’ reveals a deeper complexity of connection to land, history, and ecology, and of reconciliation on a personal level.

Playwright and performer shalan joudry is an oral storyteller, hand-drum singer and poet from the traditional district of Kespukwitk (southwest Nova Scotia). Following years of raising children, performing, writing, and ecology work, Shalan now lives and works in her community of Bear River First Nation, sharing messages of reconnecting to both land and culture.

 

Halifax actor and dramaturge Matthew Lumley co-stars.

Directed by Ken Schwartz of Two Planks and a Passion Theatre.

Disclaimer: ” ‘Love, Sex and the IRS’ is a hilarious farce written in the 1970s and with occasional bawdy language and sexual references which some may find inappropriate by today’s standards.  Minor changes have been made to soften the impact on our audiences, however the Annapolis District Drama Group is dedicated to honouring the author’s original script and intent.  There remains situations and language which may offend or be upsetting to some people.” – Miles Leahy, Director
