Streets I Rise uses monologues and songs to honor the diverse stories and immediate experiences of Portland Street Roots’ vendors. These stories are performed by one actress shifting seamlessly from one character to the next, and weaved together elegantly, taking the audience on a unique journey that explores community and resilience in the face of houselessness and pandemic.
Read a REVIEW OF THE SHOW on Broadway World.
“FROM THESE STREETS I RISE is just good theatre. Jordan’s performance was excellent and I loved the original music (also performed live) by Samie Jo Pfiefer. I’ve found online theatre hit and miss at best, but this show is a perfect fit for the medium. Thanks to Chris Harder‘s direction and the skillful work of the streaming team, I almost felt like I was actually sitting at CoHo!”
