Sheila B, writer/director | Nathan Siler, composer | Jay Dunn, movement director

rise/fall is a dystopian art rock fantasy combining movement, music, text and media.

Set in the near distant future on an environmentally ravaged earth, rise/fall reinvents the classic tale of leda and the swan as a living meditation on art, celebrity culture and the universal human need for connection. 

recent developments:

Following a standing room only workshop performance at Project Y’s Women in Theater Festival in June, rise/fall will be performed at the Balance Arts Center on November 23rd, 2019. This performance event is part of the ongoing development of the show, and is the culmination of Sheila’s artistic residency with the BAC this fall.
