After the success of our New Years eve party we set out to do a series of parties at significant points in the calendar where time shifts, and they’ve proved to be successful so far, each reaching capacity for the venue with great feedback. We started with ‘SPRING FORWARD‘ as the clocks went forward an hour, we celebrated the Solstice with ‘SOLSTISH‘ and now Summer is over, the clocks are going back an hour and the longer nights are upon us, we’re throwing a masked party to mark the next shift in time to Winter ‘HELLOWEEN – WHEN TIME REWINDS’. We have a special late night guest this time around, DJ JAPHY, who will be taking the dancefloor through the first dark hours of winter with the club suitably decorated for the eve of the eve of Hallloween. The flyers for the event, to be found around Hastings and St.Leonards, will be your mask for the night and tickets will be available HERE.
We are honored to have been given the task of creating the closing event for the Root1066 Contemporary Arts Festival in Hastings on Oct 16th. We are in the process of creating something unique to end the month long series of events marking the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, our only brief was to present something ‘forward looking’. We decided to use one of Hasting’s newest buildings, one which will have a major impact on the town over the coming years, the largest underground Skate and BMX park in the world, Source Park. The park is 65m in length, was once a Victorian Baths and not without its challenges but we have assembled an amazing group of musicians, artists, technicians and engineers to collaborate with us in a sequence of experiments utilizing the space in distinctive ways. This will be a ‘Work in Progress’. Tickets are FREE but LIMITED you can get yours HERE.
Saturday Oct 1st BBC2 aired an hour long special featuring the incomparable Kate Tempest performing her new extended poem ‘Let Them Eat Chaos’. We worked with Art Director Harris Elliot and Content Director Manny Bonnet contributing animations to the presentation, some original work and others adding subtle movement to photo montage artist Peter Kennard’s iconic imagery. An edit of our contribution is coming soon and you can catch the full show on BBC iplayer HERE.
