W A K E - The Rising

64 Tontine Street

Saturday 17 June, 6pm

WAKE is ]performance s p a c e ['s curatorial project for 2017. A six-month long programme of events exploring social consciousness, collectivity and division. It is a call to action, to wake up. A vigil to remember what has gone before and a gathering to consider how we may move forward. Consisting of three strands, WAKE includes: The Risings 1 & 2, The Vigils: Black, Rites, Earth & Sex and WAKE Festival.

The Rising gives seven selected artists the time, space and required resources to try out new work and explore the edges of their craft. Don't miss this opportunity to witness the new comers of contemporary performance art. The inaugural edition of The Risings will launch the entire WAKE program and take place during Folkestone’s Open Quarter weekend.


Whether it's working as part of the crew, taking part in workshops and learning new skills, or performing as part of the W A K E program; there are some exciting opportunities coming up at ]performance s p a c e [ and they want to here from you!
