In their reprise of the site-specific Halloween show Rizing, Abby Bender and Jesse Jason explore the role of a house as commodity and as living memory even when the holders of those memories are not so living.

The Rizing first rose last Halloween season and now, a year later, it returns to haunt the floorboards of a home in Oak Bluffs that will remain nameless.

Bored on Earth? There’s another world to visit this weekend — a planet where the arts are not just a pleasure, but biologically essential to life itself.


A sprawling old Oak Bluffs summer house underwent a Halloween weekend transformation in Rizing, an immersive, intimate and spooky new piece.
