Starwars : Identities
January 30 - June 13
Explore treasures from the LucasFilm archives. Original costumes, movie props, artworks and models of the famed star ships come together for a high-tech, multimedia interactive experience in this exhibition of close to 200 artefacts from the original Star Wars™ films.
STAR WARS™ Identities explores the theme of identity using ten components : species, genes, parents, culture, mentors, friends, events, occupation, personality, and values.
These ten components are grouped into the exhibition’s three main sections, which follow the progression of identity from childhood to adulthood: first Origins, then Influences, and finally Choices. This gives structure not only to the educational content of the exhibition but to the Star Wars collection as well.
What forces shape you ?
Discover Your Star Wars™ Character. Visitors can choose a species, and build a character with personality traits and history and receive a personalised character profile which they can e-mail to themselves.
A glimpse behind-the-scenes of this franchise, from early concept drawings, storyboarding and model making, through puppetry and costume design. Understand the personal choices that helped shape the identities of Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Yoda, R2-D2 and C-3P0.
Each visitor wears a radio-frequency identification bracelet (made of disposable paper, not rubber), which helps him/her customise the experience in this journey that explores the idea of identity and the factors that mould it – cultural forces to parental influences, and the role that mentors and friends play in shaping one’s beliefs, how clothes contribute to a character through instantly recognisable outfits – all-black ensemble, monkish robes, classic silhouettes, dramatic gowns … stormtrooper outfits … and how design has evolved over the years in the same space.
It spans all six Star Wars movies as well as the ongoing television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars™. Weaving pop-culture and science, there is a wealth of information on a range of subjects, from biology to the environment. Individual audio guides have been replace by piped audio through overhead speakers.
