CO-PRESENTED BY THE ABBEY THEATRE
Written by Ivan Coyote
21 - 23 September
Ivan Coyote and an all-tomboy band blend story, music and memory in a fearless, wry-humoured and tender insight into gender issues, defying the norm and finding your identity.
Tomboy Survival Guide is part anthem, part campfire story, and part instructions for the dismantling of the gender stories we tell. Ivan navigates the narrow halls of public washrooms, skirts the treachery of growing up under the threat of being picked to be a flower girl, triumphs over tying a double Windsor knot, and discovers the beauty in realising they were handsome all along.
This music and story-driven collaboration from award-winning writer and storyteller Ivan Coyote includes high-energy drumming and percussion from Sally Zori, the melifluous basslines of Pebbles Willekes and the graceful tinkerings of trumpet player Alison Gorman.
Tomboy Survival Guide will be on sale soon. Check back with us for further details.
