Beacons Icons And Dykons :kenneth Anger

Thu 24 November 2011 // 20:00

(Thu 24th Nov / 8pm / £5)

Beacons, Icons and Dykons pays tribute to the highly influential American underground experimental film-maker Kenneth Anger. Anger himself has been described as "one of America's first openly gay film-makers, and certainly the first whose work addressed homosexuality in an undisguised, self-implicating manner.'

The films will be accompanied by a heady mix of performances that promise to be Anger inspired, being, surreal, homoerotic with a little touch of the occult.
Beacons Icons and Dykons is a regular night which has queer leanings, showing films and creating performances inspired by them all hosted by Tom Marshman.
Trashy, moving, hit and run performances that make going to the movies feel weirdly hedonistic.
