Description

As part of LGBT HISTORY MONTH & The B Right On LGBT Community Festival

Award winning singer songwriter Paul Diello brings his gender-blending extravaganza 'Epicene' to the B Right On LGBT Community Festival after a sold out Fringe success.

Paul Diello invites you to his gender-blending celebration of iconic women in music. After a run of three sold out, five star reviewed and award nominated performances for this years Brighton Fringe Festival, Paul and his 7 piece ensemble are bringing the show back to Brighton for the B Right On Festival.

Join the avant-garde performer and his band on a colourful, camp cabaret extravaganza as they re-imagine classic songs originally performed by legendary female artists such as Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell and PJ Harvey, to name but a few. Dance, sing, laugh and cry as Paul interweaves his stories of childhood out-castings and social misfittery into well loved compositions. Every sense will be tantalised in this outrageous, rainbow coloured romp. With songs picked from a wide range of genres and time periods, some tunes will take people on an emotional journey of nostalgia and others will make people want to get up, dance and sing along (which will be strongly encouraged).

Epicene is a musical event presented in a cabaret style that will appeal to a wide audience, bringing together regular gig goers, fans of the theatre and cabaret queens as well as the LGBT community and its allies. The production is a comedic but raw tale of growing up in a world feeling disconnected.

Diello says "I wanted to create a fun platform for me to share my story of gender confusion through music that was personal to me but that would reach others and spread the message of the ‘It Gets Better’ project” (an organisation whose mission is to communicate to LGBT youth around the world that life does get better)"

Paul Diello has released two LP’s, 2011’s The Last Green Bottle and 2014’s Looking Glass and has toured extensively, promoting both bodies of work across the UK, Europe and America and supported artists including Texas, Jarvis Cocker and Kyla La Grange. He has made many festival appearances including Edinburgh Fringe, The Big Chill, Blissfields and in 2015 he opened Brighton Gay Pride Festival on the main stage in Preston Park. Paul won Best Solo Artist at Brighton Music Awards 2010 and was nominated for Best Video. He also performed at the ceremony, held at prestigious venue The Brighton Centre to an audience including Jimmy Page, Roger Daltrey and Arthur Brown.

The B Right On LGBT Community Festival celebrates LGBT History Month, is organised by the Volunteers of the Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum and takes place at the Phil Starr Pavilion - a multi functional, fully accessible, heated performance, conference and community space with a licensed bar which is located on Victoria Gardens, Brighton, BN1 1WN.
