Simon Annand at V&A

There is something magical about theatre and it doesn’t matter what age you are. I prefer the theatres that are smaller, more intimate and then you get to feel like you are part of that mysteriously creative process.

So, if you like theatre, you are bound to like Simon Annand’s exhibition ‘The Half’ at Victoria & Albert museum.

‘Half” is the term used in theatre, those sacred 30 minutes that actors get before the start of the play, when they immerse themselves in their creativity or just stay reflective, getting ready to surprise their audience. Rarely, if at all, you are allowed to see actors in those precious minutes but over the course of 20 years that’s what Simon Annand did and his work is truly mesmerizing, giving you a very intimate glimpse in to the un-atteinable world.

Beware, though, that finding the exibition in the maze that is V&A isn’t easy, it took me several attempts, following mixed-up directions of the staff. A worthy treat in the end, though .)
