Theatre in Wales

The latest theatre, dance and performance news


ABERRATION Spring into summer with dancing, tea and cake, cocktails and entertainment at May’s ABERRATION: a lounge event with an LGBT* bent. Everyone’s welcome. Dress to impress!

ABERRATION kicks off in style with a tea dance: Latin and Ballroom Dancing led by Bristol teacher Norma Daykin. Whether you’re a star of the dancefloor or a complete beginner, join in! No partner needed; you can lead or follow. And there’s a prize for most creative hat.

Then Kate O’Donnell performs her one-woman show Big Girl’s Blouse, using humour, music, high kicks and theatrical tricks to tell the story of a little girl who was born a boy – and had to use every trick in the book to get by. (Plus Q&A.)

Later, talented Borders singer-songwriter Beth Prior plays her folky, rootsy, soulfully shapeshifting songs. Nomad, her hot new debut EP, epitomises Beth's infectious guitar and compelling vocals.

She’s followed by Gypsy Wine Cartel, the electrifying local seven-piece gypsy-ska band, in their last Aber gig. Their energetic and fun live show always stirs the crowd up into a frenzy of dancing and revelry.

Multi-genre DJ Boundary, head honcho of Swing City and Black House, will keep up the tempo with killer floor-fillers, exhibiting his penchant for classic mashups and vintage sounds.

Plus raffle for LGBT charities. Don’t miss out on this fabulous night, which is financially supported by the Arts Council of Wales.

Aberration is programmed by Enfys Aber (Aberystwyth University Staff Pride Society) and SpringOut. Updates:

*LGBT: lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender
