Travel - Newcastle

I spent a day of culture in Newcastle, which featured Baltic, to the Tyneside Cinema to see Moonrise Kingdom and then Avenue Q at the Theatre Royal.

Baltic - Elizabeth Price
Her video installation were really interesting due to use of editing and choice of music. Her videos are created from archives of film, photography and physical collections which created interesting story to the audience within the blacked out gallery. Worth a pop down to the Baltic if you have the chance to experience this piece.

Musical - Avenue Q
I really enjoyed this musical as it felt quite different to other musicals I enjoy like "Next to Normal". The set was really adoptable and interesting how windows folded up to show new sets within. Plus the songs were really enjoyable and funny, worth getting hold of the soundtrack or watching some videos on youtube.
