Led by non-binary artists and musicians Alex Etchart and Amelia ‘Ace’ Armande, this workshop aims to connect participants musically and lyrically, exploring the expression of self and community around gender and trans*cending gender with the aim of creating a collective song.
Amelia ‘Ace’ Armande is a performer and storyteller with a special love for voice and music. They have recently toured with the award-winning ‘Clean: The Musical’, exploring 150 years of women’s stories in Brighton, and during lockdown they created the short story-film ‘Asu-Shu-Namir’ about the earliest recorded non-binary deity, which has gone on to become part of a brand new schools learning resource about gender identity. Their poetry has been published in Trans_Muted, and made it to regional finals in the Hammer and Tongue poetry slam.
Alex Etchart is an Anglo-Uruguayan social artist and multi-instrumentalist composer working in the UK and beyond. Raised in the South American folk tradition, Alex brings those sounds of fire and hope to contemporary social movements amplifying the voice of marginalised groups and social justice campaigns. Alongside Siobhán Knox, Alex produces the award-winning, repeat-sellout show Sex Worker’s Opera which has just completed a UK tour with support from Arts Council England and PRS Foundation. The show sold out 2 weeks in Amsterdam in July 2018 with support from Open Society Foundations, performing at International AIDS Conference and Amsterdam LGBTIAQ+ Pride. Alex produces wartime radio and international street theatre with members of Teatro di Nascosto living across the Middle East. Alex co-leads Sam Lee’s Fire Choir at Foundling Museum alongside Blythe Pepino and Ben See.
