INTERVIEW: KATE DORNEY
The V&A’s curator of modern and contemporary performance talks to Aleks Sierz about the newly opened Theatre and Performance Galleries at the museum, which display all things theatrical from historical posters to recent video recordings, and from Dame Edna Everage’s costume to Mick Jagger’s jumpsuit.
Theatre is always seen as some kind of poor, illegitimate relation, but it’s actually the most successful creative industry by a long way.
