Henrietta Moraes’ itinerant and rackety life was sustained by the tolerance of friends, oiled by alcohol and fuelled by an astonishing variety of drugs. The Guardian’s obituary, after her death in 1999, gave her profession as “Bohemian”.
In this award-winning play, Sue MacLaine captures Moraes’ characteristic wit and candour, telling stories from her life and recreating poses from her illustrious career. As the performance progresses the line between subject and object, artist and model, public and private, blurs.Through drawing and listening, the audience engages in seeing beyond the naked female form to the woman within.
Suitable for 16+, contains nudity. Drawing materials provided or bring your own.
Some of the Sea Spray team will attend this event.
