Free but ticketed
It’s time to be fabulous, fierce and fascinating! Join celebrated drag artist Rhys’s Pieces for this free workshop and learn how to tell stories through lip sync and movement. Rhys is the lead artist featured in OMOS - an exhibition at Stirling Castle of a new moving image work that pays homage to untold Scottish Black History.
The art of lip-syncing can involve subverting the expected and sharing stories in exciting ways. For his workshop, you will be asked to bring with you a song that connects you to a personal story, family story, or local or wider history. You’ll learn tips and tricks about lip syncing (miming to songs) and movement, and hear more about Rhys’s practice and his performance in OMOS.
Rhys is the lead artist on OMOS - an exhibition at the Stirling Castle - and the artists in the exhibition responded to heritage and stories to create their work. By the end of the session, you’ll know more about how you can use these creative skills to tell a story with your chosen song.
Get ready to move, lip sync and be absolutely fabulous!
