On the 14th October Wotever World will return to Brighton for one day of mega events! To start the day, FKA, Ingo, Lysander, and Harry from Wotever World, will be running a workshop for those who are either at the beginning of their stage life or those who have begun their stage life and want to know a little more about advancing it as a career/hobbie. Perhaps you arrive with an act idea already in mind and want to test it out? Maybe you have already taken to the stage a handful of times? Or perhaps you have always wanted to perform but needed that extra push from a group of supportive queers? Either way, this workshop is for YOU!  If you have things to say or show on stage, this workshop can help by providing you with a safer environment for you to test, learn and share material, tips, and talent! This workshop aims to help more LGBTIAQ+ people share their own individual stories, writing, and lip synch on stage, you may then have the possibility to take to the stage later in the evening during our queer variety show!

For just £5 we will cover:

  • Mic Technique
  • Backing Tracks
  • Bringing acts from mind to stage
  • Stage presence
  • Lip Sync technique

After this two hour workshop, you may want to join us the same evening for our 7pm queer variety show! We very much encourage QPOC, Trans, and Older Folk to join us for this mega workshop but all are welcome!

If hanging around and learning from a group of LGBTIAQ+ ICONS sounds like the place for you to spend one Autumn Saturday afternoon on the 14th October, then contact woteverworld@gmail.com or woteverworldbiz@gmail.com to book yourself a place for only £5!

FKA_Trans POwerQUEER VARIETY SHOW, 7 – 8.30

With a fresh new show packed with important messages performed by people we love! Tonight, you get a queer variety show full to the brim with power, sass, and determination! Joining us on the line up for this evening with be some of our favourite performers we have worked with over the years PLUS some freshly baked new acts who took part in our ‘Wanna Be on Stage’ workshop earlier in the afternoon.

Our booked lineup includes:

FKA – One of the BEST Non Binary Performer with the biggest heart we have ever found. When they are not DJing around the world on tour, they are performing heartfelt act touching on topics of Mental Health, Domestic Abuse, and the right to be allowed to be yourself! Brighton, you are truly in for a treat with FKA!

Seth Corbin – A queer musician who has played at Bar Wotever and across London before moving down to Brighton to study! We are lucky enough to have him and his guitar join us in Brighton at our Queer Variety show!

Chuck SJ Hay– After writing a song every day for a year, Chuck is now releasing their 50 track album; XII. XII is now ready to tour across the UK and playing extends beyond the contemporary and expected style of an acoustic guitarist! Chuck breaks the boundaries of an acoustic guitar singer songwriter!

Sammy Silver – A drag king who serves sass, sex, and surrealness! Another Bar Wotever favourite who brings queer topics and comedy in their performances! Winner of King of the Fringe in Brighton 2015 and ambassador to one of London’s longest running Drag King Night, BoiBox.

Dee Dee La Femme – Just wow. Dee Dee La Femme sings LIVE while seducing the audience with her movements. Her skill of undressing is phenomenal and once you all witness, you will all agree. There is only one way this can end… we all fall in love with Dee Dee La Femme!

Plus, we will have more performances from our workshop acts!

Length: 80 minutes, no interval

Prog 3Queer Feminist Porn, 9 – 11

To finish off this queer Saturday of mega events, we will be hosting an evening with London Porn Film Festival! We will be showing a ‘Best Of’ programme with short films from this years London Porn Film Festival! Showing queer feminist porn, short films that matter, and films that engage and are inclusive!

‘We value porn as an art form that is able to question and challenge the power structures that limit our sexual expression. Radical queer porn has not settled as an art form – it straddles the borders of visual art, performance art, erotica, political activism and many other genres – making it a unique vehicle for presenting new and radical ideas of sexuality.’

This is Fun, Fabulous, and Frisky as FUCK, created for and created by LGBTIAQ+ people!

No entry after programme started!

Entry Fee £8 / £6 

Tickets: http://www.marlboroughtheatre.org.uk/event/best-of-london-pff-2017/

The Bar Wotever Tour

As you are aware Bar Wotever set out on tour at the beginning of February and finished just last week on the 3rd March. We visited Bristol, Brighton, Exeter, and Edinburgh and in each city we did at least two nights of sold out shows!

Our first stop was at the Wardrobe Theatre in Bristol! We had incredible performances from our regular performers at Bar Wotever from Travis Alabanza, and Ebony Rose Dark, and we had three Bristol based performers take to the stage (Dis Charge, Isadora Vibes, Oliver Assetts, and Annette Curtain). We were also able to take along our stage manager Lysander and our sound techy Harry… Hooray!

Then we travelled to The MarlboroughBrighton. Where Adam All, Apple Derrieres, Sherika Sherard, and FKA took to the stage and wowed the audience at The Marlborough Pub and Theatre. This night was full to the brim of drag, live music, and love!

Next up was Exeter. After two performers and our stage manager missed their train from London… we all stayed as cool as cucumbers and waited for information that they were indeed on their way, in true “The Show Must Go On” style! Our new home away from home was at the Bike Shed Theatre, a very cute and warm space. Here we did one night of performance from Travis Alabanza, Billie Butch, and Benjamin Butch – with an appearance from Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry! Then, on the second evening we had a ‘Drag Performance Corner’ where Billie and Benjamin Butch performed in the bar area of the venue and Ingo DJ’ed the night away!

Our final stop of the tour was all the way in Edinburgh, where we teamed up with Dive Collective, to put on two evenings of fabulous shows. On both nights we witnessed drag, politics, comedy, and cabaret. All of which were performed at The Voodoo Rooms.

At every stop of the tour we witnessed some INCREDIBLE performances during the Open Mic slots that we offered… these were slots given to local performers who wanted/needed a place to showcase their work. These open mic performances showed us that there are so many performers out there who need their voices to be heard and to be listened to by a willing and loving audience. It was also so lovely to see our wonderful crew and performers pull together when we are away from our home at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern.

At the end of every show and at every city we visited on our tour, we had so many different audience members approach the crew and performers to thank us for bringing Bar Wotever to them. It was so heartwarming to see and feel the love that they felt towards us. This is why it is so incredibly important that we keep doing what we are doing, so we can reach out to more and more people around the country and then…the world! We have been asked back to Bristol, Brighton and Exeter…. Keep your eyes peeled for announcements of when will be on the move again!

We have ants in our pants!

Bar Wotever at The Wardrobe Theatre

poster_2017_smallBar Wotever in Bristol!

Bar Wotever is touring again this year and Bristol will be our first stop. We will be bringing some of our favourite performers, our community vibe, and our loving atmosphere to the Wardrobe Theatre on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd February 2017.

Bar Wotever is a weekly queer cabaret night that is held at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern every Tuesday evening. It is a platform for performers to showcase their work to a loving audience and a place for people to feel loved and welcome. It is important that we take our loving environment and place it around the UK so everyone has the chance to feel welcome in a queer space. By offering open mic slots to the local community, Bar Wotever on Tour will reach out to people around the UK who may want to perform on a stage but don’t necessarily have the platform to do so.

In each city we visit, we will create a space that includes everyone (no discrimination tolerated). There will be a show presented by regular performance artist from Wotever World, and a call for open mic slots for people who wish to perform who live locally.

Joining us in Bristol we have:

Travis Alabanza, Ebony Rose Dark, Discharge, Tom Marshman, Oliver Assets & Isadora Vibes plus a lot of open mic acts we can not wait to work with!

 

Come and see us! Three Nights, Three Different shows!
