Rizing October 29-31 & November 5-7, 2021

Presented in partnership with the Martha’s Vineyard

Film Festival and Pathways Arts

Created by Abby Bender and Jesse Jason 

in collaboration with the performers

Rizing is an evening of immersive storytelling that invites small audiences

into an unusual house with an even more unusual history, where things go

bump in the night. As the characters that inhabit this residence share their

stories through text, movement, and visuals, guests are enveloped in shifting

worlds of sorrow, humor, grace and fear.

Performed by Abby Bender, Sharon Brown, Molly Coogan,

Nia Dubon-Robinson, Laura Hall, Jesse Jason, Roberta Kirn,

Michael Lieberman, Carron Marson, Danielle Mulcahy,

Melissa Petrosinelli, Xavier Powers, and Kalyan Sayre 
with guest voices by Justen Ahren, Scott Crawford,

Brooke Ditchfield, Scott Hershowitz, Brian Hall, Rob Myers,

Niki Patton, Katherine Reid, and Cassie Tunick
