Earth Rise 2006

Earth Rise 2006 – A two act poetry play.

 

Earth Rise was the first play produced by NRP and was the start of their development stage; produced when both artist were just entering the arts industry.

Earth Rise” covers a 24 hour period on a high street in a multicultural city and highlights what happens when worlds collide.

Breaking down barriers, blending conventions, celebrating diversity. Act 1: “one more than eight” explores perception, starting with the view inside each one of us and leads into Act 2 and the way we view the world outside of us.

In Act 2: “Different Truths” everyday people take you through their life in a day and the experience of growing up in a multicultural society. Reminding us that we do not see things as they are, we see things as we are.

A collaboration between an urban style DJ and spoken word artist, Nine Red Presents a collection of poetry celebrating diversity, by exploring the history and value of all people and all cultures.

Earth Rise takes us on a journey that hopes to make each one of us explore ourselves and understand the others around us.

 

ACT ONE.

“ONE MORE THAN EIGHT”

In the soul of all humans is a space where logic and reason meet imagination and creativity. We call this space the open mind.  It is a natural human instinct to want to explore and understand.  Just as our ancestors embarked on voyages around the globe, we too must take a journey, to the only place not yet travelled, not yet explored…that uncharted territory within us all.

ACT TWO

“DIFFERENT TRUTHS”

 

What we see is not always what we get.  We all have different viewpoints, a different way of viewing things.  There are always three sides to every story; your truth, my truth and The Truth.  We all have different stories; different points of view… Different Truths.
