i wanted to go to the v&a museum with the idea that it was all entirely fashion and theatre based, but it wasn't. it was 90% historical art and sculptures, which isn't really my cup of tea, but the theatre things they did have did not disappoint! (their fashion bit did, however - textiles a-level has ruined historical fashion for me).
theatre is such a big passion of mine, as you probably already know, and i was so excited to see this little section of the v&a! i love the backstage element of everything, from shops to stage shows, so i adore seeing all the little plans and sketches and designs. they had so many interesting things, and they all seemed to be catered to my tastes haha! (hello, rocky horror designs and adam ant's bloody 'prince charming' outfit?! i nearly exploded.)
not only that, but it was so informative as well. it takes you through all the stages of performance, from advertising to planning to staging to performing. i learnt so much, and all of it will be so valuable to me if i go down the path i plan to go down. i loved every second of this exhibit and it just proves to me that i'm on the right track, which i'm very thankful for.
other than that, i'll let the pictures speak for themselves (even though they kind of suck, it seems my camera wasn't on top form that day). if you get a chance, you should definitely go see this section of the v&a - entry is free! lots of museums, when they do things on theatre and fashion, just kind of shove clothes in a display and expect you to find that interesting, but the v&a did so much more. definitely the best museum i've been to!
anyway, i think that's it! thank you for reading! xx
