A DEEP SPACE PERFORMANCE RESIDENCY

RISE & FALL (an homage to Brecht & Weill's Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny) tells the story of Jimmy Gallagher and his band of believers who discover a new kind of society that allows them “to do whatever the f*** they want”—as long as they have the money. RISE & FALL rocks out with original music that’s sure to surprise your mind, body and spirit. Enjoy the freedom and fun at an all-out party-show that will leave you wondering: Is a person’s will more powerful than a hurricane?

Join us for this punk-speed bacchanalian party-show with Jimmy Gallagher and his chorus of Alaskan cowboys, gender-bending criminals, and ladies of the night. Expect plenty of whiskey, original tunes, and general debauchery.

Melby’s androgynous struts go a long way, and by the end of this drama-club bacchanal, the ensemble closes the deal.

BREAD is a multi-disciplinary arts collective dedicated to devising new work that challenges the typical, and stretches the possible. The collective is a group of New York-based friends and artistic collaborators who organically found themselves working together again and again. RISE & FALL ran every Sunday night for over six months at the now-defunct People Lounge in the Lower East Side, and received a rave review from the Village Voice.
