A week in arts: Sadie Frost, actress
Saturday 11 August 2012
I went with the kids to the Tate to see the Damien Hirst exhibition. I took them into the room of butterflies and it was magical. I grew up with Damien in the 1990s and remember when he started. It was interesting to see the many different stages of his art. From the massive ashtray of cigarette butts that stink to the formaldehyde cow, we loved the entire experience.
I'm mad about Mark Rylance – he is one of my favourite actors. My favourite play last year was Jerusalem, I saw it four times. I remember seeing him in Hamlet years ago and I try to see as much of his work as possible.
I watched the Bob Marley documentary, Marley by Kevin Macdonald. It was one of the best films I've seen in a long time. It takes you on such a journey of nostalgia. It reignited my obsession, so afterwards I put my Bob Marley album on really loud in the car and just drove around London. I also saw Wuthering Heights. Every year I re-read Wuthering Heights and the film directed by Andrea Arnold was so bleak. It made me think about what it would have been like to live on the Yorkshire moors.
I loved Wayne McGregor's short ballet Carbon Life, scored by Mark Ronson, at the Royal Opera House. His band lined up at the back of the stage and included Alison Mosshart and Boy George.
