600 Hamilton Street, Vancouver BC V6B 2P1
After eons of silence, the way to the Other World has opened! Take the leap and venture into dangerous realms of magic and mischief, faeries and spirits. And giant robots, of course.
Step into a dark, fantastical world where your thoughts and feelings become reality, where your inner self and outer life struggle for dominance. In such a place, will you become a product of your obstacles? Will you hide away in your wildest fantasies? Or will you evolve, and rise to the challenge of a new world before you?
Join the eatART Foundation for RISE, a theatrical extravaganza unlike anything we have ever done before! eatART has spent the past 15 years supporting the creation of large-scale mechanical artworks and producing art exhibitions in Vancouver, with a focus on sustainable energy. This debut event, at the historic Vancouver Playhouse Theatre, combines mechanical artwork with dance, music, and circus to bring you an experience to transform your reality.

This event is being held on the stolen, ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil Waututh) Nations. As settlers living, creating, and organizing events on these lands, we believe it’s important to acknowledge that indigenous people have been the caretakers of this land since time immemorial. We benefit from their past and present protection of these lands. We also have an obligation to continuously work to repair harms perpetrated upon Indigenous communities, presently and historically. Settler colonialism has brought and continues to bring untold violence to these lands and people. With reconciliation in mind, we will donate a portion of proceeds from this event to RAVEN Trust. https://raventrust.com/donate/
