RISE, een Zelfhulpopera

Sense-stimulating quest for happiness

Nienke Nasserian (NL)

The musical theater performance RISE explores the malleability of happiness. Why is our happiness, our mental well-being, in decline? Surely we live in one of the happiest countries in the world? Coaching, healing, spiritual retreats, it has become a multi-million dollar business and self-help books are selling like hot cakes with promises of a better life. Is there such a thing as a roadmap to happiness? So what “healing” music belongs to this?

Nienke integrates classical singing, singing bowls, kalimba and healing frequencies of chakras to stimulate all senses through the five elements: water, fire, wind, earth and heaven.

“Nienke has captured the hearts of our audiences on several occasions. With engaging stories and her beautiful voice, she touches you again and again with topical themes.” – Guy Coolen, artistic director O.

“She swings repetitively on beats, synths, electronic vibraphone and loop station, with an upbeat flair that conveys that she both very much believes it, and very much finds it funny. Delightful chaos.”
