What is it?
Sound & Vision is Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen’s new monthly film club. Experimental artist Laurie Anderson’s Heart Of A Dog will be the first screening, on Monday 11th July 2016.
The screening will be dog-friendly, and tickets are just £2.50 if you bring your four-legged friend along. There will also be a complimentary packet of Billy & Margot Dog Popcorn for dogs to munch on.
Heart of a Dog is dedicated to Anderson’s late husband, Lou Reed (who floats almost unseen throughout). The film takes, as a jumping off point, the recent passing of Anderson’s beloved terrier Lolabelle.
Aided by use of her own compositions, animation, and 8 millimetre film from her family archive, Anderson creates a tapestry on love and loss.
The film will be screened in the live room of Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, a room laden with live music history. Florence & the Machine, Foals, Grimes, Mumford & Sons, Django Django, and Savages all played the venue early in their careers.
Laurie Anderson is an American experimental performance artist, composer, musician and film director. Initially trained as a sculptor, Anderson did her first performance-art piece in the late 1960s. Anderson started dating Lou Reed in 1992, and was married to him from 2008 until his death in 2013.
Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen have partnered with Dogwoof to bring music themed documentaries every second Monday of the month. Tickets for these events will cost £5 and include free popcorn. Forthcoming film screenings will include Mistaken For Strangers, Mavis! and Station To Station.
