IN THIS INTERACTIVE MUSICAL PERFORMANCE, guests will take an emotional journey that allows them to realize their individual and collective power, demonstrating their control over the way they see and shape the world around them. As beacons of light, their energy causes light to flow, breathing life into the experience in a rhythmic mimicking of a heartbeat
TAKE A JOURNEY and learn wisdom from conduits of knowledge as you seek to become an agent of the change you wish to see in the world. They will show us that we are not powerless, and that this is our time to rise, individually and collectively, so that we may reach our true potential for love and compassion.
POWERED BY YOU: Synchronized group movement and participation is proven to increase trust and cooperation. The Rising explores different methods of interaction that intuitively respond in real-time to guests’ movements. The more the experience resonates with participants, the easier it becomes to unpack ideas, comprehend different perspectives and, ultimately, bring change for the better as they become part of a unified experience in this symbiosis between art and technology.

At Rainbow Vomit -
Dallas' #1 Rated Immersive Art Exhibit
Guided by the powerful arrangements of the acclaimed UK group HAELOS, their music sets the tone across a multitude of themes throughout the experience. Their music “questions the concept of god and religion and its power over humanity. It’s saying we need to help each other at a human level. The way to the other side, the sublime, is to help each other and spread love and care for each other. At the end of the day, only we can help each other. There’s not going to be some profound, miraculous event that will unite us all. It’s hard work and care, putting individualistic leanings to one side and connecting.” - HAELOS
The musical arrangements start off with a quote from British philosopher and writer Alan Watts that perfectly sets the tone of this moving experience that touches on themes of love, loss, hope, and despair.
“Exude Love as naturally as the sun gives off heat” - Alan Watts
The Rising is produced in partnership with an incredibly talented group of artists that span across many creative disciplines including music production, projection mapping, 3D animation, interactive light technology, and theater arts.

English electronic group HÆLOS’ trip-hop revival style incorporates hypnotic atmospherics, pulsing beats, and haunting vocals. They issued their debut Full Circle in 2016 which serves as the musical conduit of the Rising performance. Teaming up with lead producer Dom Goldsmith, HÆLOS has customized a soundtrack specifically designed to create the right moods and frequencies in tune with the feeling of the performance.
