Hatch: Across
The Malt Cross and various venues
St. James’s Street, Nottingham
Tuesday 1 June 2010
7.30pm until late

On Tuesday 1 June 2010, Hatch is crossing over into St. James’s Street, Nottingham for a night of performance and live art antics. Hatch has invited 21 artists and companies working outside or at the edge of their discipline, or who maybe involved in collaboration with artists from other fields, to show their work across the whole of the street. Venues will range from The Malt Cross to more unusual venues for live art such as a sports bar, a virtual golf centre and a hotel.

Hatch is proud to present the world premiere of Whispers From A Rickshaw by Metro Boulot Dodo, a pedal-powered rickshaw ride spinning through the city streets, where classical Chinese music, lo-fi electronica, computer gadgetry and story-telling combine to create an intimate and philosophical ride. Also the regional premiere of A Western at the Malt Cross, by internationally acclaimed performance duo Action Hero where the audience help to reenact a Western using cowboy hats and ketchup. Save Me by another Bristol-based company Search Party will take place across St. James’s street as two performers try to communicate using bright searchlights.

Regional artists are represented by emerging Nottingham-based company, Gramophones, who are supported by Theatre Writing Partnership and will perform at The Chameleon Café. Hatch is delighted to introduce Medium Rare – a group of first year Fine Art students from Nottingham Trent University, mentored by Hatch, who will present a unique and intimate encounter at the Park Plaza. Cecille Grey and Venom and the Terrortones will provide the live music at The Malt Cross.

Venues Include: The Malt Cross, Park Plaza Nottingham, Rileys’ Snooker Bar, The Virtual Golf Salon, Up ‘n’ Down Under, The Chameleon Café
