House of Cards at Kensington Palace
“pulls of the rare trick of not only being captivatingly beautiful but also informative and historically authentic”
Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph
House of Cards was a radical new and thoroughly interpretation of the stories of Kensington Palace. It gave the audience new ways to connect to the people and stories that populated the palace at the height of its glamour and power. She created playful, interactive experience, contrasting the splendour of the court’s public face with the secret intrigues and hidden intimacies of the Royals’ private lives
House of Cards was a concept of Annette Mees and created with a large interdisciplinary team of writers, designers, lighting and sound designers, technologists, artists, actors and the curators, historians and staff of Kensington Palace.
Commisioned by Historic Royal Palaces to run from April 2012 to March 2013, House of Cards was extended until June 2014.
