Dangerous Mammals: Ivan Coyote and S. Bear Bergman Tour 2010
Door at 7:30 and show at 8:00
Ticket are $20 at the door
Come and celebrate the co-launch of S. Bear Bergman’s Butch Is A Noun and Ivan Coyote’s Missed Her, both hot off the presses at Arsenal Pulp Press. Both Coyote and Bergman are renowned performers, bringing finely their finely honed stage skills and the pitch perfect timing of master storytellers to their live readings.
Ivan Coyote was born and raised in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. An award-winning author of six collections of short stories, one novel, three CD’s, four short films and a renowned performer, Ivan’s first love is live storytelling, and over the last seventeen years she has become an audience favourite at music, poetry, spoken word and writer's festivals from Anchorage to Amsterdam. The Globe and Mail called Ivan "a natural-born storyteller" and Ottawa X Press said "Coyote is to CanLit what k.d. lang is to country music: a beautifully odd fixture."
S. Bear Bergman is a writer, a theater artist, an instigator, a gender-jammer, and a good example of what happens when you overeducate a contrarian. Ze is the author of Butch is a Noun (Arsenal Pulp Press, 2010) and Lambda Literary Award-finalist The Nearest Exit May be Behind You (Arsenal Pulp Press, 2009). Bear is also the creator and performer of three award-winning solo performances, a frequent contributor to anthologies on all manner of topics and co-editor (with the fabulous Kate Bornstein) of the forthcoming Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation (Seal Press, 2010).
