A reconstruction of Andy Warhol’s Factory is coming to Dalston on Sunday 3 September for a Warholian inspired extravaganza that will include live performances, music, films and even colouring in!
It all happens on Sunday 3rd September at 5:30pm to 11pm at Farr’s School of Dancing, 17-19 Dalston Lane, London, E8 3DF as part of the Hackney Pride 365 festival
The All Tomorrows Parties Party, will feature performances from Dalston Ballet Company, Samuel R, Marianne Hyatt and Friends, Lewis G Burton, Claire Benjamin and many more. Expect guest appearances from Andy Warhol, Jayne County, Candy Darling, Valerie Solanas and a whole host of ghosts from the Exploding Plastic Inevitable.
The party will also be a chance for Factory fans to dress up in their own eclectic outfits, bringing the studio vibes of New York to the streets of Hackney, with the best dressed receiving 15 minutes of fame!
Sue Frumin, Hackney based artist and All Tomorrows Parties Party host said: “Hackney, is the creative beating heart of London, in a similar way to the Factory in the 60’s and 70’s. It is very exciting to concentrate that wonderful artistic energy and bring this eclectic community together using the influence of Andy Warhol!”
Alongside a room of music and performances, for those in a more serene Sunday mood there will be a creative station with art materials to paint and make your own works of art and the Valerie Solanas poetry corner in honour of her divine contribution to Feminism, “The Scum Manifesto”.
Alex, Manager at Farr’s School of Dancing said: “We are proud to host this happening for the borough’s Hackney Pride 365 festival. As an LGBTQI+ friendly venue, we are excited to be transformed into our wildest Warholian fantasy – and have an arty party that brings our community together no matter what walk of life, background, sexuality or gender. So make sure you come along and get creative!”
