Performance Salons

Performance Salons

Popular in the 17th and 18th centuries Literary Salons were inclusive public/private spaces where ideas could be discussed and bodies could gather outside the control of the authorities.

In 2018 we reinvented and reimagined these hotbeds of creativity and progressive ideas by beginning a series of Performance Salons in Hastings for the 21st Century.

Performance Salon #1
The first Hastings Performance Salon took place on Friday 28 September featuring live presentations from Florence Peake, Catherine Hoffmann, Nando Messias, Lucy Hutson and Rocio Boliver.

Don’t worry if you missed it as we have more Salons planned in early 2019- so watch this space!

The History of the Home Live Art Salon 

The first Home Live Art Performance Salon was launched in 1999 in a fully inhabited family house in South London. Over 7 years we investigated ‘the home’ as space to make and experience art by producing over 50 different shows in spaces all over the house including the kitchen, bedroom, basement and even in the bath.

In 2017 we revisited the Salon premise programming bespoke Performance Salons in the historic restored Regency home Angel House in Brighton as well as a Winter Salon on West Street, Hastings!
