In the Theater, the term of Bambalinas refers to a cloth that separates the stage from what is over or behind it. All this world hidden from the eyes of the audience is extremely important to carry out a play. Sometimes you don't need big sets or kilos of lighting to express an idea or a feeling. The human body, in this case the female body can perfectly get on without any problem under a single light and in a huge space where it stands out without much effort. "Bambalinas" is an invitation to be passing through this world of semi-darkness and creation, where the protagonist wanders without worries or shame, as in the origins of Paradise. Nature knows nothing of indecency, the human being is the one who has invented it.
Cami, Which stage of your life are you in right now?
I am in a stage of stability, fulfilling my personal and professional goals. Currently I'm living the city of L.A., California.
What sociocultural differences have you found when you comparing Chile with those who live in California?
I feel that in California people have more personality and less fear, if they see something nice they say it and if there is something they don't like they also talk about it and face it without having to postpone it. They don't wait to explode one day. In addition, each one worries about their own issues and not what the rest do. I see very happy people on a day-to-day. Undoubtedly, we know that the standards of living in L.A. or in the United States are different from Chile. Another thing that caught my attention is that women are more empathetic to each other. They attend to you in an amazing way everywhere, which for me represents a breakthrough. It cannot be denied that in Chile there are beautiful and very Pro people too. Here the people don't have too many taboos. It's a freer country in terms of personal decisions and there are mooooore opportunities to Art. However, you have to be persistent. The spirit of Artist is breathed everywhere. I consider that very positive and important for our emotional side.
Do you consider that posing nude is a kind of liberation? What do you find inside of you when you do it?
The nude has always seemed liberating and super natural to me. The body is something that shouldn't be taboo. For example, in Europe the human body has always been part of Art. My Mom is an artist and She studied at the Picasso's school. She doesn't consider a nude developed in photography or painting to be misplaced if it is done from an artistic point of view. What can be sick is that many people are morbid and perhaps a large number of girls have suffered harassment or innuendo from unethical or unprofessional photographers.
“I would like to talk about all the social changes that are taking place and that are coming to Chile. I wholeheartedly hope for a fairer, more upright country and with less differences. That people appreciate how important it's to be alive especially now with the pandemic. Invite them to concentrate on small and memorable moments as life is today and unpredictable”.
How does the wardrobe you wear every day work for you? Are you looking to express something according to the different occasions that you face?
Yes, clearly the wardrobe is often linked to my mood and my personality. There are days when I am really happy and wanting to fully produce myself or invent entertaining things with clothes. And other times I go more classic with dark, neutral or uniform colors, although I love the beach full colors style from here. But I also love fall winter fashion. Due to the L.A. weather I like to mix strong colors and a lot of denim that I wear with heels on occasions. Other times all I want is to go classic with neutral and fully combinable colors.
"A great secret to knowing how to handle difficult times is to be selective about what is good for you and not waste energy thinking about what makes you feel bad or depress. The main thing is to love and value the importance of love for yourself, for another person or whatever you love if it's a good love. Love of family, Faith, it doesn’t matter your religion or your beliefs, the important thing is the passion that you feel towards what you choose, all that moves mountains".
