SATURDAY 26 JANUARY 2019
1pm-3.30pm @ The Book Club basement bar Shoreditch
Join us for one of our first events of 2019 at an event exploring the magic and myths of the moon. A theatrical life drawing event exploring legends and symbolism of the moon. Sketch lunar themed tableaux with our nude and head-dress bedecked performance-artist model Viva Lamore (fresh from New York City to our Shoreditch stage!). 2019 marks a year of celebrations marking a special year for lunar exploration and we kick off our 2019 programme to contemplate and celebrate La Luna the moon in all her glory!
Viva Lamore is a performance artist and artist model from New York City whose bump and grind comes with a twist. A teenage runaway, she lived in a cage in the basement of a theater and worked at Coney Island Sideshows by the Seashore as Blade Box Girl and Electric Girl. She also danced at Baby Doll, one of the strip clubs in downtown NYC where the neo-burlesque movement got its start. After a dozen years working in legit theater and film, she has run off to Berlin to strut her stuff on variety stages throughout Europe. Inspired by everything from Hollywood glam to Japanese kitsch, Viva Lamore's witty comedic routines cavort at the crossroads of theater, burlesque, and a really wild party.
Sketch to a dreamy moonscape playlist and enjoy incense burning during the event to stimulate the senses. A 2.5 hour long event to allow you to relax into some longer poses and capture the scenes. Drinks and food available from upstairs at the bar.
The venue has a set of stairs down to the basement. Over 18s only, unless emailed to enquire for exceptions. Drawing materials and paper provided thanks to sponsors GreatArt.
