View from Behind the Futuristic Rose Trellis – An Opera is an ambitious and exciting new live work by Ravioli Me Away (RMA) - three female directors, performers and composers. At Wysing, the immersive work will be shown as an exhibition with two live performances.
The opera incorporates video work, set design and costumes inspired by sci-fi and suburban architecture aesthetics. This surrealist, multi-media musical opera takes the audience on an audio enhanced journey as The Protagonist (the soul of humanity) searches for a body that can give it meaning. View from Behind the Futuristic Rose Trellis – An Opera is a colourful, comi-tragic take on individual and collective aspiration, explored through diverse media and music genres.
