Rise Up! at DCAC

Part rallying cry, part group hug, Rise Up! is an artistic response to the life and times we live in.

Over inauguration weekend in 2017, WIT presented a one-weekend politically-minded barrage of improv shows called Rise Up! That cathartic, eye-opening, and raw experience stirred something up in DC’s improv community, and WIT is thrilled to present this three-week revisitation of politically inspired performances. Rise Up! explores all the ways the personal really is political, and vice versa.

These shows are presented at DC Arts Center in the heart of Adams Morgan.

For group discounts (eight or more), please contact Dan Miller at dan@witdc.org.
