With One Voice are hosting the first ever International Arts and Homelessness Summit in Manchester,15-18 November 2018. The four-day conference will explore the themes of People, Practice, Policy, Performance and Partnerships in relation of arts and homelessness. Carboard Citizens are holding a performance of Rising as part of the festival programme on Saturday 17 November.
Rising is the story of Terrence, who has just been released after a short prison sentence – he’s full of hope, but faced with battles against the system and demons from his past, he’s on the edge. He’s moving on, but is he moving in the right direction?
A Cardboard Citizens play by Femi Keeling. Directed by Stuart Mullins.
This Forum Theatre production empowers the audience to change the outcome – every show is a unique experience. After watching the play, you’ll have the chance to voice your opinion and offer ideas that might change the course of the characters’ lives. Or, if you choose, just sit back and watch as the story is rewritten in front of your eyes.
For over 25 years, Cardboard Citizens has been making theatre which illuminates homelessness and the lives of homeless people, revealing truth and sometimes beauty. Our work reaches thousands of homeless and vulnerable people in hostels, theatres and prisons across the UK every year.
