LIFE DRAWING SESSIONS
Malice in Wasteland offer a wide variety of themed life drawing sessions, which typically start with a series of short warm up poses leading into longer ones for a more detailed study of the human form.
Modelling in their unique and highly intricate handmade costume, Malice in Wasteland are as comfortable in a traditional studio setting as they are at an outdoor pop-up event or in a busy festival environment.
Sessions can be tailored to suit all ages and abilities.
Malice in Wasteland enjoy bringing life drawing out of the art studios and encouraging festival attendees to explore their creativity in an unconventional environment.
The models and performers create and develop characters while building their costumes, and love to engage and play with the audiences, whilst encouraging them to take part in drawing sessions.
Malice in Wasteland have been regular performers at Boomtown Fair since 2015, the largest arts and immersive theatrical festival in the world. They run a theatrical street venue in DSTRKT5 in collaboration with The Mechanical Menagerie. Other festivals include Balter Festival, Apocalypticus: Road to Ruin, No Man's Land, Small World and Luna Negra in Spain.
Malice in Wasteland have also adapted their 'Theatrical Life Drawing' for the stage with scripted shows, aiming to blur the boundaries between performance and life drawing.
By introducing elements of drama, dance, and circus performance into the life drawing arena, artists are given ample time to draw from life as models will freeze into a series of short and longer poses during the performances.
Environmental issues are important to Malice in Wasteland, who create their costume using broken or obsolete electrical items, unrecyclable materials and other discarded objects. These are then dismantled and repurposed into unique and highly intricate pieces.
Whilst the group mainly take inspiration from Sci-fi, their costume can be tailored to suit any event or aesthetic.
