EMAV 10 Bites: Cameron Bass, Actor

Updated: Mar 9, 2019

In every neighborhood, there is someone who makes the Arts a part of their life, and our community. You'd be surprised to discover how many different people use the arts to improve the quality of life in our hometown. EAT MORE ART! VEGAS will feature them regularly in our series "10 Bites."

What kinds of art do you enjoy, create, or perform in?

Theatre, film, and martial arts.

Why do you do it?

All three mediums give me a chance to express myself to the fullest and investigate life through multiple lenses.

What’s your favorite production/performance experience so far?

I would have to say doing a stage reading for an original piece called What’s Going On : A Soldier’s Story by Carl Anthony Tillman at UNLV.

'The African Company presents Richard III' at Nevada Conservatory Theatre

What jobs have you done other than being an artist, or what do you do when you are "at work?"

I work at a North Las Vegas recreation center in an after school program and the Preschool at UNLV

What is an Arts experience that you will never forget or a memorable response to your work?

When I did the 2017/2018 season preview for Las Vegas Little Theatre and in my brief time in the scenes I received good reviews from various community actors I have not met yet.

What would you be doing if you weren't performing, creating, or enjoying the Arts in Las Vegas?

Teaching Jujitsu Self Defense and personal training.

Name something you love about Las Vegas, and why.

I love that we got a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

Best advice I’ve been given is being told to know when it is time to keep people with negative energy at a certain distance so you can keep focusing on the positive work I do personally and professionally.

What superpower would you have and why?

Healing factor (Wolverine) or control of elements (Avatar : Last Airbender)

Any future projects or events that you're looking forward to?

You can catch Cameron on stage right now. The final weekend of The African Company Presents Richard III at Nevada Conservatory Theatre, a contemporary play inspired by historic events about people who fought for their equal right to perform Shakespeare in 19th century America. It's must see theatre as an important work never performed before in Southern Nevada.

Are you a local artist of any discipline? Do you work with a company as a designer, stagehand or administrative staff? Do you love to experience it as the audience? We'd love to get your 10 Bites to share. Fill out a form here, and you might be featured in a post!
