UP|rise is a collaboration between Rabble Dance Collective, a new company of fresh aerial and acrobatic talent, and The Courtship Proper, a Denver-based band best known for its riveting live performances. The show combines cirque-style aerial performance with dance, acrobatics, physical theater and a live, original score. Through gravity-defying performances on rope, trapeze, stilts, aerial fabric, and partner acrobalance, UP|rise weaves the intricate story of a community trying to rebuild after a significant disaster.
Rabble Dance was founded in 2013 by five students of Frequent Flyers Productions Professional Training Program. After making individual pieces for their final school show, they wanted to take on the larger challenge of producing an evening-length, narrative show with a social conscience.
Because UP|rise centers on community-building and sustainability, we wanted the show to benefit an organization whose goals lined up with those themes. We found the perfect match in Sprout City Farms, a Denver non-profit that works to strengthen its community through a locally-maintained farm at Denver Green School. The farm provides fresh produce for the school, offers CSA shares, and donates food to qualifying families. 100% of the proceeds of UP|rise ticket sales will go to help Sprout City Farms.
