I’ve just come back from visiting the Make/Believe exhibition at the Newton Building at Nottingham Trent University.
Make/Believe features set design from over 140 UK Theatre Designers. The exhibition runs until 31st January and then it is on display at the Prague Quadrennial from the 17th to the 28th of June this year. it then moves on to the Victoria and Albert Museum from the 9th of July 2015 until 3rd January 2016. Do go along if you can the designs are stunning. Many of the designers featured have worked with us at the Guildhall and at least two of the designs have graced our stages here. The image featured above is a design for A Winter’s tale designed by Bob Crowley. The following image is of me inside Solotoria, a scale model of The Royal Opera House auditorium where as an audience of one I saw a short ballet performed by a pair of nail scissors in a tutu,- as you do.
There’s lots of beautiful work on display, don’t miss it.
