STILL LIFE: An Audience with Henrietta Moraes
Henrietta Moraes, model and muse to Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Maggi Hambling, was the uncrowned Queen of the 1950’s Soho set.
Hers was an itinerant and rackety life, sustained by the tolerance of friends, oiled by alcohol and fuelled by an astonishing variety of drugs. The Guardian obituary, after her death in 1999, gave her profession as Bohemian.
Still Life blends performance with life-drawing, encouraging those attending to engage with this intriguing woman as both audience member and artist. Drawing boards/easels supplied. Bring your own art materials or use those provided. No loose charcoal please.
Life-drawing experience is not needed. The play contains nudity and some explicit language. 16+.
