Moving Voices special guest announcement: Ri Baroche

We’re thrilled to welcome Ri Baroche back to our stage as our special guest for Moving Voices on 30 June 2023 following their splendid Drag ‘n’ Drop show here earlier this year.

Friday 30 June from 7pm – book here

Ri Baroche is a non-binary writer, performer and musician.

They’re fascinated by the meeting of ideas and themes that aren’t expected to co-exist, and bring the motto “Throw things together to see what they do” to everything they do.

They’ve performed from big festival stages to the top deck of the Isle of Wight ferry, and have written for stage, page and recently on a new adaptation of opera Riders To The Sea.

Their alter-shego, Hariya Hazaway, can be seen performing disgracefully and distastefully around the UK.

They will be touring their current in-development show ‘Drag ‘n’ Drop!’, a music/comedy/spoken word drag show about gender, identity, climate change and quantum physics, across November 2023.

About Moving Voices:

Moving Voices is Southampton’s longest running open mic running on the last Friday monthly, with some bonus editions some mid months and special days. Featuring monthly special guests and loyal regulars alongside total newcomers, this evening never fails to inspire and uplift with voices that will move you to tears and laughter.

Featuring poetry, song, storytelling and comedy, open mic’ers are asked to keep performances to about 5 minutes or less so that everyone gets a chance to perform. Depending on numbers, you may be able to have another slot in the second half.

Moving Voices is hosted by RKP, poet and painter.

Writing for Queer Joy – online, Weds 20 June 2023 7pm
