THE QUEER SONGBOOK and TRAUMFRAU PRESENT:

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY MIXTAPE

Party-makers Traumfrau joins forces with The Queer Songbook for a truly original live creative party celebrating the queer women of Brighton.

For International Women’s Day 2019 we’re bringing the Queer Songbook to Brighton! We’ve invited six inspirational women and non-binary people from the city to perform their queerest and dearest song live on stage!
Traumfrau has been celebrating International Women’s Day in its inimitable style - iconic, radical and fun - for the past 6 years, bringing on stage the fiercest of Brighton’s female talent. This year, joining forces with The Queer Songbook, the party embraces grand cabaret! Prepare for goosebumps, tears, and laughter! The gig will be followed by the usual unusual Traumfrau extravaganza with DJs and more live acts!
On this occasion we are also thrilled to be hosting the Lesbian Lives Conference 2019 afterparty!

Our guests for this IWD edition are:

Louisa Minghella: Full time lesbian and part time singer Louisa Minghella spends her evenings knitting, thinking about dogs, and dancing in her underwear. She’ll be singing about growing up, and making the jump. Her aim is to land safely.

Zoe Lyons: Bent Double’s star, Brighton's best and most beloved comedian, Zoe has been hella busy being our favourite comic on national tv too (Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo, Celebrity MasterChef, Room 101, Dara O’Briain’s Go 8-Bit and counting). Are we delighted to have her as a compere extraordinaire for the night? HELL YES WE ARE!

Kate Wildblood and Queen Josephine: Brighton's most regal DJ duo! With over 25 years as a disco, DJing and you know what partnership, Wildblood and Queenie know how to make a dancefloor wiggle. In recent year they have been brining more female voices to the airwaves on Brighton's 1BTN. What disco classic is this iconic dancefloor duo going to sing for us?

Aneesa Chaudhry: Aneesa grew up in a creative Asian household and went on to train as a Barrister. Her passion for singing became impossible to ignore and she now sings at Jazz and world music festivals around the world as one of the finest singers on the music scene! Aneesa sings with her 20 piece big band, and with the acclaimed Eastern Flavours Band and all female band BLISS ART (Slovenian + Asian). An honour to have her on our stage!

Emma Frankland: Emma Frankland is an award winning performance and theatre artist working in the UK and internationally. Her work often focusses on honesty, action & a playfully destructive DIY aesthetic... We can’t wait to hear her song and story on stage!

Fruit: Fruit has been sliding through the drag and cabaret scene like an over-ripe mango and has been spotted sploshing all over the RVT stage. Fruit loves to find ingenious ways to deliver (un)wholesome, raw and juicy ridiculousness so if you’re lucky enough to sit in the splash zone, expect at least 1 of your 5 five a day.

Roni Guetta: occasional singer and a full-time event producer, art lover, and community organiser in Brighton, Roni Guetta steps out from behind the Traumfrau curtain to tell a tale - well, sing it - of music, girls, and mixtapes…
