When The Souls Rise

When the Souls Rise (1990) is a phantasmagoric homage to and celebration of Halloween from the souls’ perspective. Through dance, music, and drama, director/choreographer Anne Harris Wilcox and sound artist Ward Hartenstein lead dancing spirits through one magical night of revelry. Adding to its aura of mystery, this year’s performance is set in Rochester’s historic, treasured Mount Hope Cemetery.

This is an outdoor, site-specific performance around the cemetery's renowned fountain. Enter at the North Gate entrance, where Mt. Hope intersects with Robinson Drive and Ravine Ave. Map can be found here.
