Production Workshops with Ravioli Me Away
- 21 — 23 April 2017
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, Bluecoat Liverpool 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.
Please visit the website for full application details.
Free but registration required.
