Trashing Performance: Trashing Tate

Recommended
Trashing Performance comes to a close with a day of phenomenal film work at Tate Modern. First up (12pm), there's rare archive material from New York drag historian Joe E. Jeffreys – holder of an extraordinary collection of vintage footage – and Bettina Knaup of Re.Act Feminism, presenting performance work dating back to the '60s. At 3pm, 'Man Up: Two Examples of Tranfiguration' brings together diverse and bizarre pieces including a 1962 transsexual Filipino genre mash-up and a Nigerian soap opera pastiche. Finally, at 6.30pm, there's a tribute to the underground queer cinema pioneer George Kuchar, who died in August.
