NEIL BARTLETT: STILL GOING STRONG: A RETROSPECTIVE

Sat Nov 17, 17:00

Film,Q+A, Hackney House, £6

Neil Bartlett has had an interesting life. Author, director, playwright, performer, lover, and friend.

From the earliest endeavours as the creator of The 1982 Theatre Company, to his controversial appointment as Artistic Director of the Lyric Hammersmith in 1994 and all the original work of drama and fiction, performance and film in between. And she’s not done yet.

To celebrate his 60th year, Fringe! are thrilled to be screening the entire film and video work of Neil Bartlett, including That's What Friends Are For and Pedagogue (1988); excerpts from Bartlett’s six-hour performance of Wilde's magnum opus, De Profundis (2016) as well as rarities such as Now That It's Morning (1991).

Following the screenings is an in-depth conversation with Bartlett, lead by Fringe! Programmer Seán McGovern, exploring his body of work, his life and his experience of a queer existence in London’s shapeshifting urban landscape.

Screening running time: 45 minutes

Interview: 45 minutes

This event is supported by Hackney Council through its Hackney Pride 365 initiative
