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.

Trees in art and nature

In and around Hastings we are fortunate to have so many trees and woods. Trees mark the changing seasons, the cycle of life. Always changing.  But how often do we think – or even know – about trees? HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths talks to one person who does, Jim Roseveare, tree surgeon, artist and tutor of Looking At Trees with the Workers’ Educational Association, WEA.

Strange currents in odd places

End of August approaches and with it Hastings and St Leonards annual arts festival, Coastal Currents. Amazingly, now in its sixteenth year, it has been growing exponentially in size and character, attracting international groups and live events as well as supporting local artists. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths talked to one of the curators, Tina Morris.

A Butoh magical night

Last year Yumino Seki performed her exhilarating Butoh show Hyakki Yakou, A Night Walk of a Hundred Demons, to sell-out houses out at the Hastings Museum and Art Gallery; loads of people were turned away but HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths was lucky enough to see it.
