On September 23rd, we’re bringing our Big Green Cabaret to Glasgow with our friends at Possible. Here’s your programme for the night showcasing our incredible line-up plus all the information you need to take action on the night.
Kayza Rose is a dynamic creative producer, artistic director, filmmaker, BLM activist and cultural leader based in London, UK. For more than a decade, she has focused her work on creating change for Black and POC through a variety of editorial, creative and artistic endeavours for companies and community based organisations. She’s the founder of BLM Fest, Head of External events at UK Black Pride, and COO at AZ Mag and will be our host for the evening!
Malta's reigning comedy queen Chucky Bartolo is known for selling out stand-up shows and jumping from 'UN Youth Ambassador' to 'On-stage Loudmouth' with all the grace afforded to someone her size in a six-inch stiletto. With a sharp wit and an even sharper tongue, she somehow has one of the strongest accent on the Glasgow drag scene.
Purina Alpha is a Glasgow based drag queen performance artist. Their specialty within drag is dance, and their performances revolve around my individual dance style, a mix of vogue, street/commercial, contemporary, Indian and African. One of the themes Purina explores is unapologetically taking up space as a queer black woman, both socially and professionally.
Loveable soft-boy Christian Adore improvises “radio-ready” [LGBTQ+ arts review] songs, sketches and raps on the spot. They’ve been nominated for Edinburgh's TV Festival 2020 New Voice Award supported by Netflix, as well as an Off West End award in 2019, as seen on the BBC, and BB Bitesize!
Dylema is one of the UK’s leading spoken word artists. She has been featured by the Guardian, BBC and BET. Their feminist poetry addresses head-on matters of race, gender, sex and individuality.
Carmel has always loved and admired the power of music that has always brought her new understanding of the world and even herself. She believes rapping is a powerful art that has the power to inspire listeners to reflect more consciously on how feelings and words can result in constructive change.
