Lipsyncing 101
Sat 3 September 2022, 12.15pm  – 2.15pm
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. 

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 for you connects 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 Royal Scottish Academy – and the artists in 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. Free but booking required.
