Willcocks portrait exhibition: extended!

One Shot. I heard about this exhibition from one of the artists who’s been photographed. One Shot. One snap of the lens and that’s it, photoshoot ended. Next! However it’s clear that photographer, Tim Willcocks wanted to capture – and has been successful – the core intrinsic essence of the person. Their uniqueness. Captured in a single image. One chance. The exhibition has now been extended for another week, along with opportunities to chat to Tim Willcocks himself. HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.

All musicians are unique in their musical production, but Nick Weekes is a man whose music attracts curiosity because of the unusual instruments he has created from tree branches and other found objects. Zelly Restorick interviews Nick – who does sterling work to keep the HOT website going when not fiddling with branches and wire racks – to find out more.

An exotic dancer

So many people drift down to live in Hastings – and sometimes you wonder how and why. One particular person is Japanese, Yumino Seki, an exotic bird in our midst, who is introducing us to her European take on Japanese Butoh dance. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths was curious to know more about her.

Thought to be Mozart's death mask

Battle Choral Society presents Mozart concert

The word requiem, translated as ‘rest in peace’, conjures a welcome rest after the travails of life and the pain of illness before death – but to an 18th century Catholic fundamentalist, it invokes deliverance from eternal damnation! On 29 November Battle Choral Society  delivers the anguished music of Mozart as he faced up to his own mortality, writes Chris Cormack.
