with Ravioli Me Away
21–23 April, daily 12–5pm
Ravioli Me Away are a music/performance group comprising of artists and musicians Sian Dorrer, Rosie Ridgway and Alice Theobald.
Ravioli Me Away have been working together since 2013, have released two albums, and performed at various festivals, arts and music venues across the UK and Europe. Following a recent research and development residency at Wysing, Ravioli Me Away are producing their first large-scale immersive performance work – View from Behind The Futuristic Rose Trellis which will be premiered at Wysing in 2018 and tour to venues and galleries including BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead and Nottingham Contemporary.
As part of the work, Ravioli Me Away are looking for participants to help them explore the role of the chorus within the theatrical construct, and how it relates to the collective and the individual. This three-day workshop will be a collaborative exploration with open discussions, practical group exercises, simple role play and improvisation including singing, acting and audio recording. The aim of these fun and open workshops is to potentially contribute and generate material for the final production. Please be aware that workshops may be filmed and audio recorded.
Workshops will run from 12 to 5pm across the three days. Ravioli Me Away are looking for ideally twenty people to participate, and a commitment of a minimum of one day is requested. The workshops are suitable for participants age 18 and over. Food and refreshments will be provided throughout and no previous singing or acting experience is required!
To register your interest in participating in these workshops, please create an account, or sign in, here to complete a very short questionnaire. Capacity is limited so pre-registration is required. The deadline for pre-registration is midnight Monday 17 April.
View from Behind The Futuristic Rose Trellis is a live multimedia production which will seek to speak for the world in a material and emotional sense. The correlation between the performance and process will be evident throughout the final piece and will cut between film, theatre, dance and live music. The production will attempt to address the big questions in life from an analytical yet comical perspective. The work is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
