‘It all began with Richard Burton…’ is a performance lecture taking place on a coach. Artist S Mark Gubb leads a tour through the coastal towns of east Kent, revealing a peculiarly personal relationship with the place he grew up in. Starting in Herne Bay and gradually making its way east through a landscape of strange connections and events, the tour will be littered with hearsay, C-list celebrities and coincidences. It’s the kind of history that exists anywhere, but one that can only be gathered over a lifetime of being somewhere.
It all began with Richard Burton… is a co-commission by Whitstable Biennale and Collaborative Research Group.
