RISE wanders into a twilight world of show business, where lovers meet against a dream-like backdrop of song, circus and cabaret ...

about the production

Combining tightwire, live music, theatre and Dizzy O’Dare’s surreal, eclectic style, Rise is a voyeuristic journey woven through with rich and romantic imagery, a poignant series of vignettes about the complexity of relationships - beautiful, tragic, and hilarious, delivering a delightful blend of comedy and pathos. Rise is presented by The Coasters Touring Network and is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Directed by Emma Williams - additional material devised with Flick Ferdinando Seeded by House Theatre and produced by SeaChange Arts.

I loved its inventiveness, skill and humour, plus some very tech-savvy projection work. It’s a moving and poignant piece which would go down well with any audience.

Adrian Berry, Artistic Director - Jacksons Lane

I have been thinking about some of the scenes in this show for a very long time, a great piece of performance art.

Verne Sanderson – Programmer, Brook Theatre

Whimsical, amusing, unexpected and clever. Lovely chemistry between the two performers. The story of a relationship. Falling in love, enjoying each other, taken each other for granted, discovering each other all over again. A story full of hope and laugh out loud subtle humour throughout. Recommended.
