Weaving stories and music
Writer and storyteller Ivan Coyote teams up with songwriter Rae Spoon for a multi-media evening on the Surrey stage Friday night.
In this unique performance, Coyote paints a picture of one family’s history against a backdrop of images of the Yukon in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
Together with musician Rae Spoon, the artists present a multi-media show that unthaws 60 years of stories frozen into the permafrost, with all the warmth and familiarity that has made Coyote’s work so appealing to audiences.
Coyote, an award-winning author, believes in the transformative power of storytelling and relays oral histories that inspire us to hope for a better future by reminding us of the importance of our families and where we come from.
Spoon is a transgendered indie electronic musician who has toured extensively over the past ten years in Canada and abroad.
Their show, You Are Here, takes place Feb. 10, 8 p.m. in the studio theatre at the Surrey Arts Centre, 13750 88 Ave. Tickets are $27/$30, available by calling 604-501-5566 or tickets.surrey.ca
