The View From Behind The Futuristic Rose Trellis is a bold and ambitious immersive live work by Ravioli Me Away (Sian Dorrer, Rosie Ridgway and Alice Theobald). The work launched our 2019 30th anniversary programme with two sold-out performances and an acclaimed iteration as an exhibition.
The surrealist, multi-media 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. The Protagonist expresses the paradoxical sentiment that everyone is the main character in their own life. The View From Behind The Futuristic Rose Trellis is a colourful, comi-tragic take on individual and collective aspiration, explored and expressed through a genre-diverse score and the ever-present voice of The Narrator, a soprano singer situated amidst the audience.
