King Café Storytellers
Tuesday, September 30
The King Center is emulating the famous concert series VH1 Storytellers which have hosted concerts by Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift, Pink and many more. The King Café Storytellers is even better! We are showcasing the talent of some amazing UK students and staff. There will be dance teams, acoustic music, poets, rappers, choirs and many more, but that is not all. We also have an open mic opportunity, where YOU can share your story through dance, poetry, and/or song as well.
Snapshot : A Theatrical Performance with Special Guest Mitzi Sinnot
Tuesday, October 14
Mitzi Sinnott will perform her internationally acclaimed solo show "SNAPSHOT: a true story of love interrupted by invasion". SNAPSHOT was nominated for BEST ACTRESS at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, special selection at: Cape Town Festival South Africa and International Women's Festival Tornio Finland and recipient of: Brooklyn Arts Council Individual Artist Grant, and Kentucky Foundation for Women Arts Meets Activism Grant.
Fusing words, dance, music and film, this story chronicles the quest of a mixed-race daughter from Central Appalachia who eventually finds her homeless Veteran father suffering in Hawaii. SNAPSHOT is entertaining theatre that includes singing and dancing with an emotional ride that inspires positive change for a better future!
