Tomboy Survival Guide
Tomboy Survival Guide is part anthem, part campfire story, and part instructions for the dismantling of the gender stories we tell. Writer and storyteller Ivan Coyote and an all-tomboy band take the audience on a musical journey navigating the narrow halls of public washrooms, skirting the childhood threat of being picked to be a flower girl, triumphing over tying a double Windsor knot, and discovering the beauty in being handsome, not pretty, all along.
Tomboy Survival Guide is part of the 2015 Verses Festival of Words, taking place April 23 May 3. Verses features the dynamic performances of spoken word poetry, storytelling, singer-songwriters, and crossover literary artists.
While the main space at The Rio is wheelchair accessible, the washrooms are not wheelchair accessible because of the size of the stalls and configuration of the doors. An update to the accessibility audit of The Rio was completed in January 2015 and the information from that audit will be added to this event as soon as the report is published. All tickets are non-refundable. All passes are non-refundable.
