How we programme
Andro and Eve is interested in content that explores queer stories, often focusing on voices that are otherwise marginalised, to reflect and celebrate the diversity that exists within the LGBTQIA community.We programme queer film by visiting film festivals around the UK, selecting titles to screen that move us, that will inspire our audience, and represent the broad spectrum of LGBTQIA identities. We’re always interested to hear if you’ve seen a great queer film and it hasn’t been shown in Sheffield recently. So do get in touch if this applies!
We currently have two performance strands for Andro and Eve.
The Kingdom Come drag king cabaret acts as a platform to showcase some of the UK’s most exciting drag kings. In booking acts we tend to take recommendations from other producers, and are always on the lookout for acts who are unique, bold and innovative.
A Reyt Queer Do, is a queer party series featuring queer performance. For this event we offer a few open mic slots for queer performance that could encompass, drag, comedy, or clowning, anything goes – as long as it is creative, original and entertaining. We book these open mic slots on the following basis, giving priority to:
- Performers who are not based in London, in order to meet our aim of developing and nurturing the drag scene in the North of England and specifically Yorkshire.
- Acts who are brand new or fairly new to performing so they have an opportunity to hone their work. This also reflects the fact that this is an expense only opportunity that we recognise is not suitable for more experienced artists.
