Intimate theatre at its best, The House of Marcelle

The arts are littered with beautiful works based on lost love letters, A. Vasudevan writes. The House of Marcelle, Explore the Arch’s latest offering, joins them, drawing on the missives of Marcelle van Caillie and lover-later-husband Henry Sanford. A multi-sensory work, it brings the forgotten female artist vividly to life.

Robinson Crusoe  deconstructed

It all started with a sculpture. And a chat – when Gail Borrow, the founder and the power behind the St Leonards experimental theatrical events, Explore the Arch, and sculptor Bernard McGuigan talked about  working together creatively. The seeds having been planted, they just needed a project. As the 300th anniversary of Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe was imminent, that is the venture they developed. Intrigued, HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths talked to Bernard McGuigan.

A thought-full show for Christmas

Ever seen the 1892 illustration of a man’s profile in which his three daughters’ faces are hidden? Apart from serving as a reflection on gender statuses at that time, it reminds us just how long hidden pictures in illustration have been around in the media, pictures that grab our attention and thoughts. This is just one of the fascinations that East Sussex’s experimental theatre company ExploreTheArch draws on this Christmas in their new production The House of Midwinter Thought. Erica Smith explores the inner world of thought.
