Sian Dorrer, Rosie Ridgway and Alice Theobald, better known as Ravioli Me Away, came together through a love of absurd humour, social and political issues. Not only does their music combine a wealth of styles (including but certainly not limited to punk, pop, jazz and electronic) but they’re also known for imbuing their act with performative elements and art, with more recent performances being reflections of their own individual alter-egos and characters.

Constantly reaching for new heights, Ravioli Me Away are now presenting an immersive new work combining exhibition and live performance, The View From Behind The Futuristic Rose Trellis, which heads to BALTIC on Saturday 18th May. Characteristically vibrant from the trio, the work is billed as a comi-tragic look at greed, freedom, the cycle of life and both individual and collective aspiration. The group themselves describe this exploration as an opera, but this will no doubt be unlike any opera you may have encountered before. Featuring sixteen multi-genre musical compositions across three engrossing acts, they’ll also be presenting sculptural works and costumes alongside a video installation. It’s an event that will undoubtedly engage fans and newcomers to the band alike, an audio-visual feast from singular talents.
