Barbara Hammer X BEEF Screening

Barbara Hammer is a legend and pioneer of things queer and experimental, yet her films are barely accessible. Hammer died in March this year and this screening of her best known work Nitrate Kisses on 16mm projection will be an ode, a celebration, and an opportunity to unite as a community, sharing thoughts, ideas, and issues. This event promotes queer visibility and confronts film history\'s tendency to exclude the marginalised. About the film... In her first feature, Barbara Hammer weaves striking images of four contemporary gay and lesbian couples with footage of an unearthed, forbidden, and invisible history, searching eroded emulsions and images for lost vestiges of queer culture. Questions of historic representation are examined through addressing the margins, between-the-line readings, and images outside of prescribed textual boundaries. Archival footage from Lot In Sodom (1933), often regarded as the first queer film made in the United States, as well as footage from German narrative and documentary films of the thirties, are interwoven with contemporary footage in this multi-faceted, haunting documentary. "Nitrate Kisses questions how history is recorded and encourages the viewer, gay or straight, to save scraps, letters, books, records, and snapshots in order to preserve our \'ordinary\' lives as history." Barbara Hammer CLIP - https://vimeo.com/2883381 ------- This event works in partnership with Bristol Experimental Expanded Film collective. Before the main screening, we will be showcasing some brilliant works from BEEF members: Viridian Ensemble https://viridian.hotglue.me/ Vicky Smith - \'Noisy Licking, Dribbling and Spitting\' (2014) https://vickysmith.blog/ The screening will then be followed by a panel discussion (members TBA) and time for audience Q&A. ------- TICKETS 5 available through Headfirst (link below) or at the door. Please get in touch if you cannot afford this and we can figure it out - nobody will be turned away due to lack of funds. https://www.headfirstbristol.co.uk/#date=2019-08-21&event_id=56266

Bristol Hoop Class

Join me for a special three hour class in Bristol In this class we will go over off body single hoop transitions+tricks and double hoop transitions + tricks, as well as insight into new techniques I have been developing. This class is accessible for beginner-advanced students and has been specially designed to cater to all levels. Get ready to explore new and never before seen hoop transitions and tricks broken down into easy sections. This class will leave you with HEAPS of hoop inspiration to take home. I believe that meditating and hooping go hand in hand which is why this class combines both of these practices. Please bring at least one hoop, if you do not have a hoop I will have a few extras. (you can also bring all your hoops) A water bottle, a journal, and some kind of mat to lay on. See you there!

Novel Writers: Adam Scovell, Mothlight

Steeped in dusty melancholy and analogue shadows, Adam Scovell\'s debut novel Mothlight is an uncanny story of grief, memory and the price of obsession. Phyllis Ewans, a prominent researcher in Lepidoptera and a keen walker, has died of old age. Thomas, a much younger fellow researcher of moths first met Phyllis when he was a child. He became her carer and companion, having rekindled her acquaintance in later life. Increasingly possessed by thoughts that he somehow actually is Phyllis Ewans, and unable to rid himself of the feeling that she is haunting him, Thomas must discover her secrets through her many possessions and photographs, before he is lost permanently in a labyrinth of memories long past. Novel Writers Each month we invite a debut novelist to read from and talk about their work in an informal setting. Prior knowledge of the text is not essential. Topics of discussion include theme, structure, inspiration and the craft of writing. These sessions are a great way to discover new writing talent and great books. The series is a partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas. Adam Scovell Adam Scovell is a writer and filmmaker from Merseyside now based in London. His writing has featured in The Times, BFI, Sight & Sound, Little White Lies and The Quietus. He runs the website, Celluloid Wicker Man, and his film work has been screened at a variety of festivals and events. In 2015, he worked with Robert Macfarlane on an adaptation of his Sunday Times best-seller, Holloway, and has worked on films alongside Stanley Donwood, Iain Sinclair and BAFTA-nominated director, Paul Wright. His first book, Folk Horror: Hours Dreadful and Things Strange, was published by Auteur in 2017 and he has recently completed his PhD at Goldsmiths University.

Sleepaway Camp (1983) - Bristol Improv Theatre

"The story of Sleepaway Camp is pretty much everything you\'d expect from a slasher movie and nothing you\'d ever expect, which is what makes Hiltzik\'s campy and disturbing summer camp tale still one of the more memorable horror movies ever made." - Daily Dead As the summer comes to an end, why not kick off your shoes and dip your toes in the crisp waters of the lake as we visit the cult horror classic Sleepaway Camp! Released in 1983 when the slasher movie was at its peak thanks to the likes of Halloween Movie and Friday the 13th, Sleepaway Camp is lauded in cult film circles for its creative deaths, shocking revelations, weird script and bold acting choices! Once you see it, you\'ll be unable to un-see it! All profits from the screening will be going to Travelling Light Theatre Company\'s Yes Let\'s campaign More information: https://bristolbadfilmclub.co.uk/sleepaway-camp/

Blanck Mass | Live & Signing

Blanck Mass will be live in-store at Rough Trade BRISTOL to perform tracks from his new album \'Animated Violence Mild\', released 16th August on Sacred Bones Records. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 6.30pm | Doors open + Album/ Ticket collection 7.30pm | Live on-stage 8.15pm | Album signing --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Pre-order your album/ticket here> https://www.roughtrade.com/gb/events/rough-trade-bristol-blanck-mass In this post-industrial, post-enlightenment religion of ourselves, we have manifested a serpent of consumerism which now coils back upon us. It seduces us with our own bait as we betray the better instincts of our nature and the future of our own world. We throw ourselves out of our own garden. We poison ourselves to the edges of an endless sleep. Animated Violence Mild was written throughout 2018, at Blanck Mass studio outside of Edinburgh. These eight tracks are the diary of a year of work steeped in honing craft, self-discovery, and grief - the latter of which reared its head at the final hurdle of producing this record and created a whole separate narrative: grief, both for what I have lost personally, but also in a global sense, for what we as a species have lost and handed over to our blood-sucking counterpart, consumerism, only to be ravaged by it. I believe that many of us have willfully allowed our survival instinct to become engulfed by the snake we birthed. Animated brought to life by humankind. Violent insurmountable and wild beyond our control. Mild delicious. This is perhaps the most concise body of work I have written to date. Having worked extensively throughout my musical life with dramatics, narrative, and melody against all odds, these tracks are the most direct and honest yet. The level of articulation in these tracks surpasses anything I have utilized before. -Benjamin John Power
