@ Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club
Saturday 29 April 2017
19:30-02:00 (last entry midnight)
£6/8 (adv.) – £8/10 (door)
Dukes and Countesses, Earls and Baronesses, Kings and Queens and all the drag in between (and beyond)… Grab your diamonds and tiaras and come along to ROYAL TRASH for a night of pompous debauchery!
For your exclusive amusement, we unveil our cabinets of curiosities and offer you a spectacle of high class divertissement: expect haute couture fantasies, aristocratic mannerisms and vulgarities, subversive gender-bending telenovelas, exercises in (un)Britishness, beauty pageants and drama queens, voguing sessions, Trans-Coronations and a dethroning of the great white male… With guest of honour ‘UnRoyal Variety’ star Jonny Woo!
Deep Trash is a one night only exhibition-cum-performance-club-night featuring live performances, installations, artworks, visuals and videos spread over 3 floors by over 40 artists in East London’s Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club.
For the Royal Trash episode, the venue will be open from 7:30pm, with a 1 hour curated screening on loop, an exhibition area, interactive installations and performances. We will start the night with sexy and sassy electro/house music beats by Julian Von Petrovosky and end with Vogue ballroom ‘realness’ by Jay Jay Revlon. Dressing up (or dressing off) encouraged!
On Thursday 27 April 2017, we have organised the conference Power, Subcultures & Queer Stages at Queen Mary University, London, to introduce some of the artists and their work. Presentations by Daniel Lismore, Jonny Woo, House of Bent, Malik Nashad Sharpe and keynote lecture by Dr. Shaun Cole, Associate Dean and Course Director at London College of Fashion. #queerstages
