A View from Behind The Futuristic Rose Trellis an Opera by Ravioli Me Away
‘View from Behind the Futuristic Rose Trellis’ is the first major collaborative production by Ravioli Me Away, a collective comprised of artists and musicians Rosie Ridgway, Alice Theobald and Sian Dorrer. It features an immersive six-week exhibition at Wysing Arts Centre in February 2019 that will tour to tour to The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Arts, Gateshead, The Box, Plymouth, Bloc Universe and The Albany, London. VFBTFRT is in partnership with Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge; BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead; The Box, Plymouth; Block Universe Performance Art Festival, London, The Albany, London and leading participatory arts charity Heart n Soul
The production was a multimedia installation that incorporates synced video projection, animation, sound and sculptural intervention that takes the audience through a dizzying multidimensional journey on a quest for the answer to everything. The opera tells the existential story of the trapped soul of humanity, travelling through time and space looking for a body that can give it meaning. With each body, the soul dissipates and becomes more universal.
We were delighted to be partnered with Heart n Soul for this production. Heart n Soul are a brilliant NPO charity organisation who support musicians and artists with learning disabilities and who are based at The Albany in South East London. Ravioli Me Away have worked and collaborated with Heart n Soul in various capacities over the past few years and particularly with Dean Rodney Jr, one of their artists.
