Storyteller Kevin Kling is part humorist, part poet and philosopher, part sacred fool. Known for his funny, poignant tales, and a Minnesota accent straight out of the movie “Fargo”, Kling’s plays and stories have delighted audiences around the globe, and his commentaries are featured on NPR’s All Things Considered. Kevin Kling: Lost & Found explores the experience of loss and the journey to healing through storytelling.
We see how Kevin’s physical disabilities—the one he was born with and the one that resulted from a motorcycle accident—have shaped his art and life. Kling’s stories draw not only on his childhood growing up in suburban Minnesota, but also on Shakespeare, Dante and Homeric legend, with wisdom and relevance that transcends to modern day life. This captivating visual experience blends documentary and performance, and features original animations to bring storytelling from the stage to the screen.
