Live Performance & Life Drawing
A Series of Online Events, Courses & Performances

NUDE

Part of the ‘Container Project’

OUTLINE

In May 2020 LEVEL Arts Centre launched a new online programme in response to the COVID 19 lockdown. NUDE forms a part of this providing a series of live events combining performance art and life drawing.

During the COVID 19 lockdown in the UK we have challenged ourselves to provide interesting opportunities for our artists and performers to create live events that can engage new audiences and offer a creative resource in this remote, screen-based world that we suddenly found ourselves in.  The NUDE project set out to ask ourselves how bringing a 3D experience into a 2D medium (contained on a screen) can offer new perspectives and interesting ways of engaging with the human form and body. NUDE was launched in May 2020 and comprises a series online events which provided unique opportunities to sketch, draw and mark paper in response to performances by a live performer. For the first project we commissioned performer Rachel Gay to develop four improvised performances each exploring the theme of ‘Containment’ (in all its meanings). Each performance was repeated providing a total of eight public life drawing events available through Zoom. These were untutored life drawing sessions with an option to be guided by artist Georgia Peskett.

Work created by people during these events now forms our online NUDE Galleries. We have been very pleased with the response with some amazing images demonstrating a variety of styles and approaches.
