A great London 24h again, starting off with a performance of Dracula in dance at Wilton's Music Hall, a very atmospheric venue for this production. The focus on this photo was affected by the clouds of dry ice vapour.
The dancing was really inventive, and the experience was enhanced by sitting next to 2 young men who attended the performance dressed up as Dracula.
Next day, a tortuous journey up to Alexandra Palace, to the Knitting and Stitching Show.
Blue moon in the sky?
Well worth the trip,especially to see: the quilted coracle; several of the winners from Festival of Quilts; quietly embroideries from Tilleke Schwarz; the paintings, embroideries and quilt from the collaborative work of Nicola Jarvis and May Morris. The 3D embroidered pieces of anatomy by Sally Hewett were intriguing and uncomfortable at the same time.
With my thread supplies replenished, finished off with an hour in the National Portrait Gallery to see the exhibition of portraits by Laura Knight, and wonderful contemporary portraits by Jonathan Yeo and Dean Marsh.
