RISE is new Musical performance Art of an age old story seen through the eyes of the roman CENTURION assigned to GUARD jesus in the last week of his ministry.
RISE is the creative vision of Brad Olsen, of the band “The Waiting,” and Lloyd Williams, of Two-Ton Raygun. Written over a decade with the assistance of many other creative minds, RISE tells the story of the last week of the life of Jesus of Nazareth. In everything, we have attempted to be accurate to the first century authors, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, that tell this story. However, we have imagined it anew from the perspective of the Roman Centurion. Please join us to see this most important week in history from a new perspective told with all new art, dance, acting, and music.
