Had an absolute blast touring with Sarasvati Productions for International Women’s Week, March 2019.
Kicked off the community tour for International Women’s Week Cabaret of Monologues, “Here I AM at Rainbow Resource Center. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to perform, meet and chat with young adults. I don’t have many opportunities to engage with young adults, and I was floored how articulate and intelligent they are. The group I performed for proved to be very aware of what’s going on around them socially and globally.
I hit the road with the cast and head out to the Pas and FlinFlon.
I’ll be closing the show with my performance poem “I Am NOT A Victim” for International Women’s Week Cabaret of Monologues,”Here I Am.”
Directed by Hope McIntyre and Rachel Smith.
Summer is very short in Manitoba and one of my favorite things to do is sit out on the deck play my guitar and watch the sunset. This little story book of tunes is the end result of hours noodling on the deck on hot summer nights, playing guitar for no particular reason other than the sheer joy of it.
The winter are hellishly long like 6 months long, to pass the time I’m recording in my spare time. As I do I will upload them for you to enjoy.
Thanks for listening.
March 2nd to the 9th is International Women’s Week, and I’m excited to be part of SARAVATI PRODUCTIONS, CABARET OF MONOLOGUES.. I will be performing my poem, “I Am Not A Victim!” along side 8 fantastic female playwrites, storytellers, performers and singer songwriters.

Working on my first album, I hope to have it completed and released on Bandcamp early this summer.

The general public is in the dark as to what we in the creative community go through trying to make a living within the creative arts. I’m trying to change that by documenting my journey.
No matter how many rejections letters I get I’ll keep trying.

I dipped my toes in theatrical waters with 8Box Productions during Winnipeg’s 2018 Fringe festival. Cubical Jockeys written and produced by Avery Gilperson and Allan Coleman, is not just a theatrical play, but a performance art piece.
Through interactive multimedia, Avery and Allan spin a quirky musical comedy exploring working life at a call center. The story revolves around Arpen (played by Avery Gilperson) who falls for Sandy M. (played by Arlene Libich) who are stuck working the grave yard shift during a political crisis. They eat pizza, flirt, have a short illicit affair in the office, Arpen has to deal with a call from a crazed Unicaller (played by Shereen Ramprashad), he ends up being interrogated by the FBI, fear of stairs, elevators, MeowDogs, and explosions, in the end Arpen and Sandy M. end up on a commune out in the middle of nowhere.
Critics had no idea what to make of the play, however the play write’s bold and untraditional approach did not go unnoticed and was recognized for its creativity and artistry. The production had a shaky start but as the days passed Cubical Jockeys attracted a cult following. Which is short of amazing considering there was no budget for advertising other that a few posters, social media and word of mouth.
I think it’s fair to say given a few years Avery and Allan will be setting trends and blurring the lines between theater and performance art.
