About the Films:

The Informals II 360 (31m36s)

In December 2023, artist duo Polina Medvedeva and Andreas Kühne (NL/NO) transformed The Old Market with an immersive performance and cinematic experience. The artists live-mixed documentary footage with sound art, performing alongside three of Brighton's outstanding musicians: Phonetic, Marshall Mandiangu, and Bobbie Johnson. This 360 event was a re-imagined presentation of their 2021 performance of The Informals II, which was co-commissioned by Lighthouse and Brighton Festival. Developed during a Re-Imagined residency at Lighthouse in 2019, Polina and Andreas explored and documented Brighton’s sub-cultures and youth cultures.

Make The Ting 360 (53m 24s)

December 2023 introduced a one-of-a-kind immersive experience in Brighton with Elijah’s Yellow Squares making their 360º debut at The Old Market. Funded by The Space, a national organisation supporting digital innovation in the cultural sector, this event featured a lively audience in the round. Make The Ting 360º included a series of exclusive videos unique to the scene, blending innovative, immersive, and original performance elements.

Elijah’s debut Brighton performance was described by an audience member as “exciting, accessible, inspiring, and brilliant.” This industry-first event combined an interactive lecture experience with 360º technology and a live grime MC set featuring Jammz. The performance experimented with hybrid structures, redefining what “immersive” can mean for an audience. By wrapping the venue in 360º Yellow Squares and incorporating live streaming, Make The Ting 360º offered a fresh take on traditional live events, experimenting with the transition from in-person performance to cross-community digital experiences.

Presented by The Old Market and Lighthouse. Supported by The Space. Additional funding provided by Chalk Cliff Trust.


We look forward to welcoming you to this unique showcase of BSL film screenings.

About The Artists


Make The Ting 360

ELIJAH is a London-based writer, DJ, artist manager, and co-founder of the iconic record label, Butterz. He shares his thoughts on sustainable artistic creation, electronic music, grime, web3, community, social media and his various other interests in short notes, known as the Yellow Squares on Instagram and X (formerly Twitter).

Having worked with Lighthouse as Associate Artistic Director (2017-18), Elijah has a longstanding relationship with arts organisations in and beyond the music industry, with the yellow squares making their way onto billboards and into football stadiums, as well as lecture halls across the globe.

Since 2021, Elijah has been sharing his 15 years of experience in and beyond the music industry through his Yellow Squares, a digital phenomenon that has made its way offline into both a lecture series and an eight-track album created with Grime MC, Jammz. Make The Ting was written and recorded in just seven days, with each track exploring the Yellow Squares as a gesture towards creative freedom and digital experimentation, with over one hundred listeners “remixing the ting” and producing their own original responses to the work.


The Informals II 360

POLINA MEDVEDEVA works within the intersection of film, installation and performance, portraying individuals or communities who exist by circumventing political prohibitions, societal stereotypes, and effects of economic crises and conflicts. Questioning linearity in storytelling, she explores formats that allow for nuance and multiplicity of narratives. Her focus on the tactics of civil disobedience and mechanisms of vernacular resilience – improvised, passed through generations as oral histories, smuggled in through migration – speaks of the (im)possibilities of existing within while being against systems of oppression. Medvedeva was a resident at Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten 2020-2022, with works exhibited i.a. at Stedelijk Museum, Bergen Kunsthall, WIELS, Al-Ma’mal, Sonic Acts and LIAF.

Sound artist ANDREAS KÜHNE utilises electroacoustic music, collaborative audiovisual performances and interactive installations to explore non-idiomatic field improvisation as a methodology for interdisciplinary and site-specific art production, presentation and participation. Kühne’s work has been exhibited and performed at HYBRID Biennale (DE), Baltic Circle Festival (FI), Sonic Acts Festival (NL), Inversia Festival (RU), Lofoten International Art Festival (NO), Lighthouse (UK). He is a research fellow at UiT The Arctic University of Norway, Tromsø.

PHONETIC is an artist who is already synonymous with Brighton’s thriving hip hop scene – thanks to her skills on the mic, combined with her unwavering creative drive. That drive and talent go way beyond her 25 years and they are good signifiers as to why she has already earned support slots for a number of notable artists and acts, including Rag’N’Bone Man, Children of Zeus, Skinnyman, LEVELZ, Dr Syntax and Amy True. Phonetic continues to build her career with more live shows and collaborations, as well as her very first solo project – The Dictionary of Proverbs LP – which promises to launch into the UK scene and beyond.

BOBBIE JOHNSON is a Rapper/Producer coming out of the sunny seaside city Brighton (UK). Her work spans conscious thought and social commentary, as showcased on her latest EPs ‘You & I’ and ‘The Defier’. Over the past few years, she has been supporting the likes of Rag’N’Bone Man, Roots Manuva, The Pharcyde + many many more, and played festival stages around the UK and Europe. She has gained the nickname of ‘Rapping Adele’ – increasing her fan base with every show she commands, promoting the new age voice of hip hop.

MARSHALL MANDIANGU is a multi-talented singer, rapper, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. With his diverse skill set and immense passion for music, he has garnered recognition as a 4-time award-nominated artist. The enigmatic musical alter egos of Marshall Mandiangu (M.Kudo the singer, CM17 Sho Sho the rapper), seamlessly combine the celestial influences of astrology with the raw emotions of love and vulnerability. As a singer, Marshall effortlessly weaves introspective lyrics with infectious melodies, painting vivid portraits of human connection and the intricacies of relationships. As a rapper, Marshall delves into a mysterious and ethereal realm, captivating listeners with his enigmatic storytelling and atmospheric production. Together, these aliases create a unique musical experience that transcends genres, inviting audiences to explore the depths of their own emotions while getting lost in the cosmic melodies crafted by this extraordinary artist.
