V&A Theatre Gallery re-design

DHA were delighted to be asked back to re-light the V&A Theatre Galleries following an object re-display. DHA lit the original displays for the same curatorial team in 2009, and have since worked with the department on Hollywood Costume and David Bowie Is…

The highlight of the new display is the acquisition of Handspring’s Joey from Warhorse, donated by the National Theatre. We worked with the National Theatre’s in-house lighting team to recreate the lighting effects used in the production, within the museum’s conservation guidelines.

Joey’s arrival at the V&A can be seen in the video here
