Spotlight: Ken Corsbie






The true true authentic, unique, original Caribbean storyteller. Ken brings the sound of the sea, taste of mangoes, heat of the sun, humor of the islands, rhythms of Calypso and Reggae. Hear the accents of Caribbean Voices from the Bahamas down through the island chain to Guyana. Growing up in Guyana with his multi-ethnic background of Chinese, African, Amerindian and Scottish, and working throughout the Caribbean in theatre, radio and television has given him the widest possible cultural experiences.

Programs offered by Ken Corsbie:

THIS MANGO SWEEEET!" - Mystories of the Past, Present and Personal. This is my signature program of growing up in Guyana, living and working in the Caribbean, ComingOver/OverComing in America... picking mangoes, jumping on trains, My Mummy and Daddy, bizarre theatre experiences, how/why I came to America, arriving in New York.

"CARIBBEAN VOICES" - Tour de force performance of the best oral/aural poetry of the islands which must be both seen and heard. My interpretations often include audience participation in one form or another, and they also form the basis for my popular activity workshop "Dig de Riddim Sing de Korus".

"WALLS OF JERICHO" - a variety of variable length stand-up comedy routines, laced with my skewed views of living in the Caribbean and in America. Often Politically/socially/culturally incorrect humor.

ISLAND STORIES - Folk tales and stories from the best island writers and playwrights. Includes the ever popular MONKEY LIVER SOUP, an animated ANANSI SPIDER story, a "small-boys" action adventure with trains, a mythological spirit story set among the Amerindians of Guyana, a condensed version of Nobel Prize Winner Derek Walcott's musical fantasy play "TI-JEAN AND HIS BROTHERS", and a cautionary tale of the first ever World Conference of Animals.

Quotes:

Lee Pennington, Corn Island Storytelling Festival, Louisville, KY
