DEEP TRASH ITALIA #2 Eurosex Edition
at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, East London
£6 adv. / £8 door
h 18:00-02:00 (last entry midnight)

Following the success of our first event, the Deep Trash Italia fundraiser exhibition-cum-performance-club night gets regular at the Bethnal Green Working Men’s club (back every 3 months with different themes!).

For ONE NIGHT ONLY we will fly you on our special SUMMER TOUR across the best and worse of EUROSEX culture: a ‘Bad Porn Cinema’ room, trashy TV and ‘sex sells’ commercials, dirty games, kitsch and campy aesthetics, vintage soft-porn that will make you LOL, diva fashion, melting popsicles and bikinis… and all the dance and pop music that everybody secretly loves! Get wet and wild for a hot summer night with:

DJs Fantoni & LoGatto and The Coolness pumping the beats of international hits and Italian camp and trash classics, from Disco to the present.

PERFORMANCES (starting at h 19:00): Theatrestate’s Fanny Hill Project, Juntee & Nikko, Giulia Tommasi, Emma Allegretti & Hanna Junti, Jennifer Picken & AnnaMaria Pinaka, VDREY Feat SHULTZ, Leaky Vessels and grand finale with A Man To Pet!

VIDEO, WORKS and INSTALLATIONS: Laura Arend, Lorenzo Belenguer, Alex Brew, Emma Grüner, Lora Hristova, ideadestroyingmuros, Chara Kolaiti, Katie McDougall, Eden Mitsenmacher, Emily Mulenga, Emely Neu, Tatiana Pancewicz, and Klaus Pinter, Yole Quintero and Jasmin Reif.

Time Out (Critics’ Choice) says:
“Pizza. Silvio Berlusconi. Italy’s contributions to history have been
both awesome and… not-so awesome, and this fun-filled night
invites you to celebrate both categories in brilliantly trashy style…
So, head to Bethnal Green and find out what it’s like to live la dolce vita!”

Deep Trash Italia – Eurosex Edition is in support of Archivio Queer Italia – a sister organization of CUNTemporary (London) – the first Italian platform on queer art, theory and activism. Curated by Giulia Casalini with CUNTemporary Team.
