Sun Up, Rain Falls, River Rises

by Phosphoros Theatre with Mira Siegel and Pickle Illustrations

Let Sun Up, Rain Falls, River Rises take you to three different countries as you listen to the memories shared by the writers. We recommend listening to The Dawning after sunrise, imagining Goitom’s journey as you experience the same calm and stillness of the early morning. After The Rain is best heard after a rain shower, as life resumes its usual pace and the ground and trees are still wet from the downpour. Whether by a lake, a canal or even your garden pond, listening to My Life as a River by water reminds us of the immense power Mohamed witnesses as he grows up by the Nile.
