Tomboy Survival Guide

19. Ivan CoyoteTomboy Survival Guide is part anthem, part campfire story, and part instructions for dismantling the gender stories we tell ourselves and each other. Writer and storyteller Ivan Coyote and an all-tomboy band invite the audience to join them as they navigate the halls of public washrooms, skirt the treachery of growing up under the threat of being picked to be a flower girl, triumph over tying a Windsor knot, and discover the power of realizing they were handsome all along.

This performance blends story, lyric, music, soundscape, memory and maybe even the odd elementary  school photograph. Tomboy Survival Guide is a live stage experience that defies gender and genre boxes with the same compassionate defiance and fearless and tender truth telling that Ivan  Coyote has been bringing to their work for nearly two decades of publishing and performing.

Please be advised this performance contains occasional use of strong language.
