Weekend Larks (Nov 11-13)

This, that and the other going on in the next couple of days

Weekend Larks (Nov 11-13)

Tranny Hotel
How do I express myself fully as a person? Do the words “male” or “female” define me well enough? Is there an “in-between” and do I belong there? If you’ve ever found yourself facing the larger than life questions, head over to the Adelphi this weekend.

Tranny Hotel will see over a dozen transgender artists, both male to female and female to male, from across the globe, perform a plethora of different works in numerous spaces around the hotel from bedrooms and suites, to staircases, hallways and function rooms from theatrical genres including dance, physical theatre, poetry, one man/woman shows and interactive performance.

On Friday, performance artist Thom Shaw will begin the presentation of Drag Mountain as part of the Tranny Hotel launch. Particpants will be invited to contribute to a growing dress by attaching an item of clothing, and over the weekend the dress will grow and be worn as part of a trail through Liverpool to Alternative Miss Liverpool on Saturday evening.

Tranny Hotel, Liverpool Adelphi, Friday 11th November – Sunday 13th November, weekend ticket £20


LilyLilyDrags to riches
A towering hairdo, fabulous frocks and plenty of attitude... that’s our Lily!

Savage Style will feature a selection of out­ TS worn by the acid-tongued alter ego of Wirral born comedian and television presenter Paul O’Grady, on display for the first time as part of Liverpool’s Homotopia festival.

Shame that Ms Savage isn’t there herself to model the dresses.

The outfits, which are dominated by sequins and animal prints, are displayed on mannequins. Lily herself, apparently, has retired to a convent, but we have our doubts.

They include a black sequined dress and matching cape worn for a role as the Wicked Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, a blue and silver ball gown from Blankety Blank and a zebra print mini dress and diamante biker jacket with an 'Evil' design on the back.

There will be seven dresses and outfits worn by ‘blonde bombsite’ Lily in her many different guises, including host of television game show Blankety Blank. You can also see four outfits on display at the Museum of Liverpool.

Dolby City

DolbyDolby“There is nothing new under the sun,” said Thomas Dolby in opening moments of his first album in 20 years. Maybe not. Still, very few performers today are as innovative and multifaceted as the man who brought us “She Blinded Me With Science” way back when. Well, in 1983. In musical terms, that’s a forever ago.

The Emmy-grabbing, electronic legend and ground-breaking synth master, will tour his brand new studio album, ‘A Map Of The Floating City’ in Liverpool this weekend.

After all this time, fans should expect something of an “event” release from Dolby, and he has indeed delivered a package that’s both a literary and aural experience full of surprising imagery and soundscapes. It says here.

Thomas Dolby, The Stanley Theatre, Liverpool University, Saturday 12th November from 7pm, tickets £21.50


Muèvete on up

MueveteMueveteBringing a taste of hot and spicy Brazil to the cold and wet Liverpool, providing you with an opportunity to experience the excitements of this exotic and savoury country, Ben Brasil promises to offer everything you could hope from an establishment mirroring the sunnier side of the globe.

Bem Brasil (or Well Brazilian in English), dates back to 2007 in Manchester, with its newer branch opened in November 2010 in the heart of Liverpool.

And what Brazilian bar would live up its name without some salsa-dancing? Whether salsa's your thing, or merengue's more your swing, salsa RNB makes your day, or Latin pop's more your way, on Saturday Bem Brasil shows you how to shake your booty in their monthly salsa-classes, hosted by Louis de Sousa.

And it’s not just dancing; they also have special offers on beers, mojitos and caipirinhas. Or if you fancy champagne cocktails, shots, sangria or Brazilian signature cocktails – they’ve got it. So why not escape the gloomy weather and head down to show your moves – and learn a few more this Saturday?

Muévete at Bem Brasil Liverpool, Every 2nd Saturday of the month, 1 Class £4 or 2 Classes £5
