An online cabaret including drag artist(e)s, poets, comedians and rappers will take place next week on Thursday, April 15. The event, which includes Rye’s own Timberlina, aims to prompt conversations about climate change and in particular to amplify often marginalised voices within the movement.
The cabaret will be hosted by award-winning comedian and presenter Thanyia Moore, and will consist of 10 acts from artists from across the UK. London-based drag icon Christian Adore. is set to perform an original rap about veganism and fellow drag king Izzy Aman (Isabel Adomakoh Young) has created a set about the role toxic masculinity plays in the climate crisis, which they’ll debut on the night.
Leeds based poet Ògún will perform spoken-word analysis about the role of language in how we relate to each other and to the planet, while Liverpool-based poet Ellis Howard will perform a piece which addresses the working class perspective on climate change. Timberlina will present a climate friendly thoughtful musical set.
The organisers, a climate charity named “Possible“, have implemented a tiered ticket pricing system in which VIP ticket holders subsidise the cost of cheaper or free tickets for those who would otherwise be unable to attend. Standard tickets are £5-£10, VIP tickets at £20 and can be bought online.
