Se Levanta (It Rises) Raquel Acevedo Klein, Alba Acevedo, David G. Klein, Efraim Acevedo Klein

About the show

A song-cycle set in 3 Acts, Se Levanta marries music and visual art to instill empathy towards Puerto Ricans and Nuyoricans across the US. Through UV Blacklight paintings, electroacoustic soundscapes, contemporary classical-latin chamber music, and stop-frame animations, the Acevedo-Klein family will give voice to Puerto Ricans who are rising out of the blackout. Portraits of resiliency and beauty being accentuated by rubble will be set to recreations of Puerto Rico's bioluminescent bay, El Yunque rainforest, and back-country, all of which were obliterated by hurricane Maria.
