Dash Arts with Radio Gagarin present: Necrorealism

Wed 04 December 2013 - 7.30pm Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, E1 6LA London

n darkest December the Dash Cafe conspires with Radio Gagarin to bring you, literally, a night to die for.

We'll be exploring all things deathly with an evening inspired by St. Petersburg's underground enfant terrible: Necrorealism. An exquisitely disturbing selection of films will be screened, followed by a conversation on Death with necro-experts and aficionados. 
The evening will then deteriorate into a life-threatening disco with Nigel Burch and the Flea-Pit Orchestra live on stage and DJ Mourrka on the decks. Life is so passé...

4th December, Rich Mix, Bethnal Green Road, 7.30pm

Starting promptly at 7.30 pm:
This summer our special undercover agents took a trip to the Necrorealist crucible of St. Petersburg especially to source the crème de la creme of this disturbing cinematic movement.

Chaired by Dash Arts Artistic Director Tim Supple with:
Ivan Gololobov: Doctor of Philosophy, Associate Research Fellow, Department of Sociology, University of Warwick
Alexander Kan: Arts and Culture Correspondent for the BBC World Service
Inese Strupule: Founder and editor in chief of Obskura Soviet cinema club and portal

Songs of death, decadence and decapitation from the banjolele-wielding bard Nigel Burch, accompanied by his Flea-Pit Orchestra: Dylan Bates the fragrant fiddler and the infernal double-bassist Richard Lee
DJ Mourrka: London's only Russian gangster cat will play her finest selection of soul-destroying melodies to make your heart weep and your feet skip.
