Late Checkout – Closing Party


Sunday 6 October, 7.30 – 10pm
White Rock Hotel, Hastings
FREE (Pay Bar)

Celebrate the closing of this year’s festival by joining us at the White Rock Hotel for an evening of live music and performance game playing by the ever irreverent but hugely entertaining Boogaloo Stu, Richard DeDomenici, Seth Kriebel and Search Party.

Enjoy some low tech, low brow DIY games including Boogaloo Stu’s Crimplene Millionaire where you get to relive the 1970s (think Mateus Rose, Angel Delight and disco) playing an oversized board game with a slightly dodgy gameshow host. The winning team get to decapitate Orville. Hoorah!

If you fancy something more energetic, then help Richard DeDomenici with Swivelympics, a new international sport he launched during the 2012 games using nothing more than an office chair and a lot of puff. As DeDomenici works to professionalise the sport in preparation for the next Commonwealth Games, he invites you to try and beat the current record of 17 swivels.

If this hasn’t tired you out, then perhaps try your hand at playing Search Party to a game of table tennis. Search Party vs is a durational performance in which the artists will challenge the good people of Hastings and St Leonards to a marathon game of ping pong accompanied by live commentary, team talks and rousing speeches. And finally, if you are after something a little quieter then take part in Seth Kriebel’s Unbuilt Room. Inspired by artificial intelligence, science fiction and virtual reality, your memory is put to the test as a performer guides you through a virtual world, exploring strange rooms and solving puzzles without you even having to leave your chair.
