Burn at BFI

Burn, the platform for moving images by cabaret artists returns as part of the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival at BFI Southbank on Monday March 18 2013.

Programmed by Ben Walters – Time Out London cabaret editor and co-director of experimental documentary ‘This Is Not a Dream’ (LLGFF 2012) – Burn is an eclectic night of comedy, documentary, music and madness, drawing on work made for the camera featuring cabaret artists from London’s dynamic contemporary scene and beyond.

This year’s LLGFF event includes Video-interactive live performance  from Jonny Woo and Alp Haydar, who’ll be using material shot at the festival itself, and on-screen exuberance from Bette Bourne, Nathan Evans, Dickie Beau, Scottee, Tim Brunsden, Charlie Hides TV and Drew Droege (aka Chloe), touching on everything from the Cuban Missile Crisis to Gaga’s meat dress. Yes, everything.

They are also showing Vinegar To Jam, Ben Walters and Edward Lawrenson’s observational documentary about the much-missed Bistrotheque cabaret room, and, from the archives, 1965’s ‘Salome: The Dance of the Seven Veils’ by Avery Willard (subject of LLGFF doc ‘In Search of Avery Willard’).

All this plus a free Gutterslut afterparty in the Blue Room with even more visuals and tunes from DJ Nic Fisher.
