Are you really here?

If you are, then how do you know you are?

Are you looking for confirmation in the eyes of the person sitting next to you?

Do they know you? And if so how do they recognise you?

Is it from your jacket? your hairstyle? your dependable moral compass, witty remarks or bad breath?

The View From Behind the Futuristic Rose Trellis enthusiastically sings and dances its way through inner and outer realities, sifting through its characters to reveal moments of golden clarity shared by all. Escape escapism through this vivid, witty-wry opera about greed, aspiration and freedom.

Written and performed by artists and musicians Ravioli Me Away (Alice Theobald, Sian Dorrer and Rosie Ridgway).

Songs Produced by Tom Hirst in collaboration with RMA. Featuring special performances and musical contributions from Dean Rodney Jr, Onyeka Igwe, Eothen Stearn, Siobhan Mooney, Dan Mitchell, Ben Waller’s, Scott Bradbury, Victor Jakeman, Patrick Moran and Kathy Grey.

This performance is part of Block Universe, London’s leading performance art festival taking place from 18 May – 2 June in venues across the city.
