April 7 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Riverview Arts Centre, Royal Theatre (located in Riverview High School, 400 Whitepine Rd. Riverview) is presenting Ivan E. Coyote, a Canadian spoken word performer, writer, and LGBT advocate on Saturday April 7, 2018 at 7:30 pm. “Tomboy Survival Guide” is a live stage experience that defies gender and genre boxes. This performance blends story, lyric, music, soundscape, memory and maybe even the odd elementary school photograph. http://www.ivancoyote.com/
Ivan Coyote was born and raised in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. An award-winning author of eight collections of short stories, one novel, three CD’s, four short films and a renowned performer, Ivan’s first love is live storytelling.
Ivan often grapples with the complex and intensely personal issues of gender identity, as well as topics such as family, class, social justice and queer liberation. Ivan Coyote believes that a good story can help inspire us to invent a better future.
Ivan Coyote’s Tomboy Survival Guide is an intimate, irreverent memoir about growing up transgender in a rigidly gendered world. Armed with compassion and a ready supply of wry wit, Coyote recounts their personal history.
In 2017 Ivan Coyote was a finalist for the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction for “Tomboy Survival Guide”.
Ivan Coyote is a seasoned stage performer who over the last two decades has become an audience favourite at music, poetry, spoken word and writer’s festivals around the world. Be advised that this performance contains occasional use of strong language.
