An avant-garde single launch
Music — Dance — Fashion — Live Art
Developed at the Barbican, mentored by Lindsay Kemp & Lea Anderson
Livia Rita will celebrate launching her first single ‘Sunscar’ from her forthcoming debut album ‘Rewild’ by taking over the Ugly Duck warehouse.
Livia Rita explores more avant-garde ways of performing her synthesiser drenched music through a strong visual identity; formed of stylised movement, live art and fashion created by herself. Together, it collides into a 4D explosion of art and inspiration.
The concert is followed by a subversive art catwalk themed to the single, dissecting notions of love and visions of uncertain futures. It is a collaboration between Livia and 30 young dancers, designers and creatives.
About the Artists:
Livia Rita has developed her own eclectic musical style together with composer and producer Tom McLuckie, drawing on a wide range of influences and genres spanning electronic, pop, experimental, classical and new wave styles. Wild, brutal textures meet vulnerable, otherworldly melodies in adventurous and emotional ways.
Livia Rita developed this work at the Barbican, Hackney Showroom, the Yard and Rich Mix.
