  3. The Drowned Man


    Last night I visited Punchdrunk’s interactive theatre production ‘The Drowned Man.'

    “Temple Pictures is the name of the fictional Hollywood film studio, which forms the setting and backdrop of the production. Influenced by Georg Buchner’s famous unfinished play Woyzeck, the production occupies four floors – the various sets and locations within the building represent internal and external locations both within Temple Pictures and also the outskirts of the town near which it is situated. The various locations include a desert, a saloon, a trailer park, a chapel, as well as several dressed sound stages and a Lynchian black and white chequerboard dancefloor. The Drowned Man is Punchdrunk’s largest theatre installation yet, covering 200,000 sqft. and catering for up to 600 audience members per show with a cast of nearly 40. The audience members, who are free to roam around the sets at will, wear white masks to distinguish themselves from the cast, and the narrative is communicated through a series of overlapping scenes blending the mediums of interpretative dance, contemporary dance and traditional acting”.

    Truly one of the most thrilling and entertaining experiences I’ve had. Abandon all preconceptions of what theatre should be and prepare yourself… The production ends 6 July – GO!

  5. Bailey’s Stardust


    I called in at ‘Bailey’s Stardust’ exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery last night. He certainly mixed in the right circles with lots of interesting muses. Being good friends with the likes of Mick Jagger and Andy Warhol made for some great shots. There’s lots to see, all chosen and grouped by Bailey himself and set out in themes that are particularly important or memorable to him. Worth a look.

  6. The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier


    A couple of us attended the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit last night at the Barbican. This theatrically-staged exhibition brings together more than 165 cutting-edge couture and ready-to-wear garments including iconic costumes for film and performance, from the early 1970s to the present day. Lots of interesting elements of digital, graphic and spatial design. It's well worth a look.
