Spoken Word (storytelling, visual art)

Add to favourites

Description

In a world where we learn to hate the bodies of others and fear our own, MUSE offers a chance to find them instead. Located at the intersection of stories, art and observation, MUSE is a true happening, an experience that is whatever you need it to be. MUSE begins as a life drawing session with Cameryn as model. In MUSE, however, the model speaks about living in a body that is under intense scrutiny wherever she goes. Audiences may watch, draw, listen, ask questions... participating how and when they wish.

Really interesting hour with Cameryn Moore. After being put off art from a young age, the idea of doing any kind of drawing made me nervous, but Cameryn created a warm space for people to try drawing for the first time, accompanied by music abs stories and anecdotes from her experiences life modelling. An unlocking and life affirming hour, and thoroughly enjoyable!

I very much enjoyed this, so much so that if I was in Edinburgh from the 18th-20th, I would definitely come again.

Cameryn talks about how being a life model has changed her relationship with her body, about the challenges of the work, about how artists - and other people - respond to bigger bodies. She is open to questions during and after the session. You are free to draw or not, and talk or not.

It's different, what she says is interesting, and the venue has great food. (Parking almost opposite, and lots of bus routes pass by).
