A Rising Tide
Welcome back to your river
Thank you to everyone who made our 2021 season a success! We hosted seven incredible shows, two nature hikes, met some amazing new folks and were thrilled to see our stage crew working and learning through the season.
Thank you to 16 Tech Community Investment Fund and Lilly Endowment for supporting this program. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Stay tuned for 2022 dates and info available in late Spring 2022.
The story behind the festival
A Rising Tide is an Indy Convergence initiative that will bring performance to the shores of the White River. It is mobile, non-invasive programming that will create a seasonal theater district along both sides of the river, that’s been tapped as one of the most exciting things happening in Indy this summer. A Rising Tide also creates arts-based jobs in the Near West and will donate a portion of proceeds to the NW Livability task force for resident-led projects. A Rising Tide is also working with trailblazers city-wide to integrate our programs into existing plans around the revitalization of the White River.
With an initial gift from Reconnecting to Our Waterways through the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust White River Fund, Indy Convergence purchased two outdoor stages including one that will float on the river.
In 2019 Indy Convergence produced five shows with artistic and community partners who included Fonseca Theatre Company, Kenyetta Dance, Forward Motion, UnNamed Productions, White River Alliance, the Eiteljorg Museum, and bands, The Palace, Sweet Poison Victim, Chatham Heart, and Bigfoot Yancey.
