We our very proud that our Associate Designer, Myriddin Wannell, has been selected to exhibit his work from our show The Passion that happened in 2011 with National Theatre Wales (See our projects page for more details) at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Make/Believe: UK Design for Performance 2011-2015 celebrates the diversity of performance design across different art forms.
The exhibition includes the some of the costume and props worn by Michael Sheen and Mydd’s original design sketches.
When asked how he felt about being selected for the exhibition, Mydd said, “Let’s not beat around the bush it’s a massive honour to be asked to be part of the Make/believe UK design for performance exhibition, at the V&A! What a gorgeous opportunity to revisit all of those amazing photographs and prop/costume bits that now seem to have almost become modern day relics of their own.
The passion was so much more than the sum of its parts; I think it’s fair to say it was a life changing piece of work for me and so many others.
The real stars of the show are the people of Port Talbot who gave so much of themselves to the show, it’s a bit tricky to hang them on a wall in the V&A for 6 months though!”
The exhibition opens on 11 July and runs until January 2016.
