Livia Rita is a young Swiss/London singer, designer and artist with an inexhaustible devotion to music, visual art and a progressive way of thinking.
Her eclectic musical style draws on a wide range of influences and genres spanning electronic, pop, 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 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 lead by Tom McLuckie, it collides into a furious, unashamedly dreamy and tantalising live show; a surreal live 4D music video.
The performance is developed at the Barbican with mentoring of Lindsay Kemp and Lea Anderson.
The debut album will be released in spring 2019.
Tom McLuckie is producing Livia Rita's debut album.
He is also responsible for the live arrangements, the sounddesign and involved in the composition.
He is the synth wizard of London and plays keys in the band.
She is a dancer and choreographer from Greece who has been with this project since the beginning at the Barbican.
She is one of the main dancers and intensely involved in creating the movements and visual image.
