About

Avante Garde Music, Art & Dance

‘In Livia Rita’s voice one doesn’t only hear Bjork, but the slightly manic, genius reverberations of Kate Bush.’ Tagblatt, Switzerland Tour, 2017

With previous performances at the V & A and Barbican, we’re pleased to welcome young visionary artist, Livia Rita! She will be giving a very special contemporary performance, aiming to communicate, express, move and question fashion through music, singing, a big installation, more outfits and of course, dancing.

Livia Rita’s eclectic musical style draws on a wide range of influences and genres, blending electronic pop effortlessly with experimental, classical and new wave styles. She subverts the listeners with each song, as wild, brutal textures meet vulnerable, otherworldly melodies in adventurous and emotional ways.

Livia Rita explores avant-garde ways of performing her synthesiser drenched music through a strong visual identity formed of art fashion and stylised movement designed by herself. Together with a gang of dancers and a band led by Tom McLuckie, it collides into a furious, unashamedly dreamy and tantalising live show; a surreal live 4D music video.

The debut album will be launched as a total artwork, including a music video for each song, and a magazine, which merges the lyrics of each tune with photography of their correlating art fashion collection. The work is developed at the Barbican with mentoring of Lindsay Kemp (David Bowie) and Lea Anderson.

After building up her core following in London’s radical subculture music and art scene, Livia Rita has toured Germany and Switzerland twice, where they have been picked up by Tonio Amin Zaoui from dq agency in Berlin. He is currently booking a larger Germany tour and festivals for summer 2019. Together with Coldkings, he will provide partners for the promotion of the upcoming European tour in autumn and the forthcoming releases
