Thea, manchester/snottingham
i like funky colours and gentle ensembles






Went to see Dr Dee tonight! It’s a musical written and starring Damon Albarn (from gorillaz and blur) about the downfall of this mathematician/alchemist/generally clever guy in the 16th century… The visual effects (done by Rufus Norris) were absolutely amazing, like it had these reeling paper books and a live raven at the beginning and the costumes were so delicious and it was all done so seamlessly…. it didn’t even matter if you didn’t understand what was going on the whole time because it was just a feast for your eyes anyway & the music was brilliant, some of the songs were just Damon Albarn singing with instruments like the lyre & drums..and some were sung by the characters classically, there was a bit where they were making bird sounds it was awesome
