"My mission as an artist is to transport the viewer closer to their own magic, their inner beauty and that of the World."
A multimedia and performance artist, Thierry Alexandre will premiere his latest live installation in the foyer of the De La Warr before the staged show begins. His living sculpture is inspired by the current environmental issues humanity faces, and his performance mesmerizes the audience into a timeless realm, where human body and natural elements collide spectacularly.
There will be no photography or filming allowed for this performance as requested per the artist.
Thierry's work will also be featured in Freya von Bulow’s Paper Couture collection on the catwalk in form of face jewellery created in collaboration with Freya.
John Wilson and Lily Kim make up the ethereal acoustic duo Eskimo Kiss, propelled by haunting harmonies and bewitching guitar. John is a BIMM graduate from Hastings. Lily has a classical background hailing from Berkeley California.
Having watched previous shows with admiration through hungry twinkling eyes, they feel fortunate to be able to add to the vibrant and beating heart of Front Row. The creative spark of our community never ceases to inspire them as artists, they're enjoying orchestrating their take on fallen angels, the divine and creatures of the night.
Eskimo Kiss are currently recording our EP, to check out more please visit their facebook or find them on soundcloud under eskimokissmusic or email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Eskimo Kiss will be performing at the beginning of the catwalk show.

Hastings based iDOLRiCH Theatrerotto tours the UK and on the continent with a repertoire of puppet performances and events for adults and younger audiences. Described as "A tonic for the imagination" iDOLRiCH shows are cutting edge both in terms of style and content, the latest adult performance being FIELD of ASPHODEL a Greek creation myth re-telling created by the company's artistic director Julia Dunbar McLean. THE MODEL (see picture) told a visual story of the life of super 60's model Jean Shrimpton with her own contributions including a gallery of her photos taken by David Bailey.
iDOLRiCH also works in the local community with a raft of training workshops, most recently in settings with senior citizens and with women of refugee or asylum seeking status with opportunities for apprentices and volunteers to gain experience in a working theatre company.
We are excited that iDOLRiCH will be performing as part of the catwalk at FRONT ROW.
