The Drawing Theatre with Spirited Bodies - BAC

The Drawing Theatre

Event preview

LONDON Drawing’s first Drawing Theatre event for 2012 takes place at Battersea Arts Centre on Saturday, February 11.

London Drawing together with Spirited Bodies have invited a cast of up to 30 models to create a progressive day long scene, morphing and evolving throughout the day.

This is a fantastic chance to not only draw – but, if you are interested, get involved and model yourself!

Spirited Bodies, an organisation run by performer, life model and writer Esther Bunting, is dedicated to enabling people to recast their body consciousness through working as an artists model for the first time alone and in groups.

Speaking about the event, Esther Bunting said: “Artists rarely have a chance to draw multiple models at a time. Spirited Bodies gives them that opportunity using a very diverse group of models, many engaging in modelling for the first and possibly only time in their lives.

“Spirited Bodies models come from every age group, every body size and shape, every ethnicity. This is a fantastically exciting opportunity to be involved in a happening which is a unique experience for both models and participants.”

The Drawing Theatre is a spectacular fusion of theatre and drawing in a creative workshop designed to intrigue and excite. The sessions are a result of a six year creative life drawing program facilitated by London Drawing at Tate Modern and combine elements of performance and movement, light and sound to create an unforgettable drawing experience which aims to re-invent the traditional concept of life drawing.

Price: £45 per session – basic materials included and all levels of experience welcome. To book call the box office on 020 722 32223 or visit www.bac.org.

Time: 11am to 5pm
