Andro and Eve Enter a New Phase
Award-winning arts organisation Andro and Eve are pleased to announce that they have managed to secure Arts Council funding which will be used to support an exciting programme of work for Autumn 2019 – Spring 2020. The programme will provide both training and performance opportunities for emerging artists in the Yorkshire region, as well as showcasing some of the UK’s most exciting queer performance.
Founded in 2016 by Rhiannon Scutt and Katherine Warman, Andro and Eve have built a loyal following over the last three years for their unique events that allow members of the LGBTQ+ community to celebrate queer culture in safe, inclusive spaces. To date, the organisation has hosted immersive film screenings, delivered several drag king workshops and are the creators of Sheffield’s first drag king cabaret, The Kingdom Come and the party series A Reyt Queer Do.
Andro and Eve’s events continue to grow in scale and ambition, with their last, a drag king cabaret at Abbeydale Picture House, attracting an audience of 330 people. Building on this success, the organisation is set produce another drag king cabaret at Abbeydale Picture House in March 2020, along with another edition of A Reyt Queer Do at Theatre Deli on 30th November. Andro and Eve are also excited to announce a new collaboration with CAST in Doncaster. The first event is planned for 13th November and will be hosted by award-winning Drag King Louis Cyfer. As well as this, a weekend of drag king performance workshops are also set to take place on the 9th and 10th November at Theatre Deli. Participants will have the opportunity to apply to perform at either CAST or Theatre Deli in one of the open mic slots showcasing new queer performance.
