Trying It On

Cholmondeley Productions present Lea Anderson’s

Trying It On

Thursday 16 May at 7.30pm, Bristol Museum & Art Gallery

Commissioned for Bristol Museum & Art Gallery’s ‘Museum at Night’ event, Lea Anderson’s ‘Trying It On’ is a new performed exhibition featuring a selection of costumes from The Cholmondeleys and The Featherstonehaughs’ archives.

Performed by six dancers with a sound track by Steve Blake and costumes by Academy award winning Sandy Powell, Emma Fryer and Simon Vincenzi, ‘Trying It On’  looks at class and gender through the inimitable eye of one of the UK’s leading, iconoclastic choreographers.

Drawing audiences of over 1000, ‘Trying It On’ was Bristol Museums’ most successful Museums at Night event to date.
