DEATHTRIPPING featuring Lydia Lunch

About

SAT 18 & SUN 19 FEB DEATHTRIPPING The Garage presents...DEATHTRIPPING - a festival of trash film and performance curated by Bernadette Louise. The programme features seminal video works from experimental filmmakers Nick Zedd and Richard Kern alongside live performance from the legendary Lydia Lunch. Presented across two days, DEATHTRIPPING journeys into the radical manifesto of the Cinema of Transgression, an 80s underground film movement which spawned from New York's No Wave scene and is characterised by an extreme and satirical take on themes of pleasure, horror, sex and disgust. PROGRAMME: Saturday 18 February | 6.30pm-late | £10 adv Iconic performer Lydia Lunch headlines a special evening of spoken word including excerpts fromParadoxia,an autobiographical document of her early career when she collaborated on numerous transgressive films and led influential No Wave band Teenage Jesus and the Jerks. Lunch's performance kicks off a late night of one-off performances and installations against a noisy soundtrack of no-wave and punk. Artists include Joss Carter, Paula Davy, Emergent Behaviour, Evangelia Christakou, Yolanda de los Bueis, Isabelle Schiltz, Benjamin Fox, Andrew Moscardo-Parker and DJ set by Greg Bird.
