Kohelet July 2014

I perform my translation of the book of Kohelet as a one person show complete with the cooking of an authentic eastern meal on stage.

If you are interested in a performance please email through our contact page and include the prospective dates(s). I will check my calendar and get back to you with proposed costs for your event.


Video Clips

The two clips below are the introduction and conclusion of the performance. They are low resolution and not professional quality but give an idea of the look and feel of a performance (the flashes are from a reporter who was taking photos for a newspaper article).

“Amazing! The presentation gave an overview of the book Ecclesiastes in an engaging and informative way. Vance was very respectful of time limitations and willing to work with us to give the best overall presentation. I very highly recommend this!” Jim Bredeson, Medicine Hat

“Vance, as Kohelet, invited us into his kitchen and shared his wisdom. Though none of us spoke, it felt like we were engaged in conversation, the kind where you are happy to listen because the one talking is wise and engaging.”  Marvin Penner, Evangelical Free Church of Wainwright

“All five senses are stimulated through Vance’s presentation of the book of Ecclesiastes as he challenges his audience to re-think their busy lives and to enjoy Gods gifts each day.” – Cliff Pedersen, One Hope Canada

“Vance brings an oft-overlooked and confusing book to life. Presented as a warm friendly discussion over good food, Vance makes it well worth our while to spend an evening in Kohelet’s company.” – James Enns, St. Barnabas Anglican Church

“In an engaging, “sense”sational way, Vance brings Kohelet to life. We discover a fellow struggler with the significance of work, faith and life. The air is filled with wisdom, roasted eggplant and the challenge to find joy in what we do.” – Pastor Lee Woolery, Lutheran Church of Our Saviour

“Vance brings the words of Ecclesiastes to life with clarity and purpose. As Vance performed the book I was caught again and again with the common sense wisdom of the book. It’s message will bring meaning and hope to your life.” – Pastor Jason Metcalfe, Bowden Evangelical Missionary Church

“Wonderful experience! Vance’s presentation of Ecclesiastes is refreshing & interesting, as you are immediately drawn into Kohelet’s kitchen and heart. Engaging and enriching. Highly recommended!” Judy Brown, Office Administrator, Victory Lutheran Church

“The Art of Work” was a joy to host. Vance is professional and easy to work with. The show itself kept us fully engaged the whole time – it was so interesting and relevant, it hit us right where we live. I heartily recommend it! – Jeff Kilmartin, Wiesenthal Baptist Church
