Relive the last days of Bistrotheque

Posted at 3:30 pm, January 7, 2013 in Arts & Entertainment
Vinegar to Jam

Since 2004, the cabaret room at Bethnal Green bar-restaurant Bistrotheque had been one of London’s most daring spaces for alternative drag and experimental performance. Last March, the room was demolished as part of a renovation project but our cabaret editor Ben Walters and filmmaker Edward Lawrenson were on hand, shooting tranny superstars Jonny Woo and the LipSinkers as they prepared for their final shows. See their short documentary, ‘Vinegar to Jam’, and a performance by Jonny Woo – along with films about and performances by alt-comedy troupe Frank Chickens and human suspension artists States of Bliss – in London Short Film Festival event  ‘Come to the Cabaret’ at the Horse Hospital at 7pm on Saturday January 12.
