Who Wears The Trousers

Capsule were invited to curate an exhibition for the Royal Shakespeare Company in response to the Roaring Girl Season, we worked with the Girls Who Draw, a group of female illustrators from across the UK. Inspired by the Swan Theatre production, they playfully explore the tradition of cross-dressing in theatre and how clothes are used to express identity, the exhibition is entitled ‘Who Wears The Trousers.

Here is a sneak peak from our install yesterday, a huge thanks to Nicola Salmon from the RSC who has been a dream to work with, as has the ever amazing Jo Weldon who has magically fabricated the moving structures and of course Karoline Reerie and Ruth Green from the GWD who have worked alongside Capsule to make the exhibition a reality.

Go and see it for yourself, the show opens on the 7 May till the 31 August and is free to the public.
Artists include – Anke Weckmann/Elle Donlon/Jane McGuinness/Karoline Rerrie/Kristyna Baczynski/Laura Kate Chapman/Mina Braun/Ruth Green
