ANDRO AND EVE CREATE UNIQUE, FEEL GOOD EVENTS THAT CELEBRATE QUEER CULTURE... WELCOME.
Join us for a cosy winter screening of this powerful documentary about Swedish rapper Silvana Imam, who describes herself as a lesbian, feminist and anti-racist punk rapper. Imam’s raw raps are autobiographical and strongly focused around sexual identity, politics and her own immigrant background—her father is from Syria, her mother from Lithuania. Silvana arrived in Sweden at an early age, and the film explores Imam’s relationship with Sweden, her new – found fame, and her romance with singer Beatrice Eli, who makes music for and about women.
We’re proud to be collaborating with Sheffield Doc/Fest for this special event, and the film, which screened at Doc/Fest 2018, will be introduced by the festival’s deputy director, Melanie Iredale. With plenty sweet treats, hot drinks and the warm surroundings of famous Sheffield music venue Yellow Arch, it’ll be an evening to uplift and bring light in the dark winter months.
We are the creators of Sheffield’s first Drag King cabaret, The Kingdom Come, showcasing drag king talent from across the UK, and queer party A Reyt Queer Do which features some of the most exciting queer performance, comedy and music, as well as providing a platform for emerging talent.
Our drag king workshops are fun, physical, suitable for all abilities, and explore gender as a performance. We have also collaborated with experienced drag kings to share technical skills in the art of ‘mansformation’, helping participants create their own drag king characters.
Our approach to film screenings is ‘more is more’. Expect themed décor, cakes, live performance or director Q&A’s, and activities. Our film screenings are a chance to enjoy queer classics and the best new queer films in cosy settings with sweet treats.
