Random Rab, the master of inventive experimentalism and emotion, will perform a special online concert with live painters Morgan Mandala and Randal Roberts and dancer Alex Tomassian of Block 1750 on Thursday, May 20 at 8:00 p.m. MDT.

ARISE Online presenting Random Rab will be produced and orchestrated at the legendary Colorado Sound Studios with the free online broadcast set to feature full-length performances, concert-quality set designs, live painting, dance, exclusive interviews, creative fan interactions and more. During a time when live performances are slowly starting to emerge from the pandemic, ARISE Online continues to allow artists to reach their fans without hesitation or delay and perform high-quality production performances that can be enjoyed by their fans in real-time or on-demand.

ARISE’s featured artist, Random Rab, has served as a vessel for messages within our hearts since 1998. More than just a DJ or producer, Rab has evolved into a whimsical wizard, creating songs of faith and devotion, and inspiring a generation of dreamers to go deeper. The master of ceremony returns to ARISE with new music, funky wardrobe changes and a provocative online journey.

Joining Random Rab on stage are visionary co-creative couple, Morgan Mandala and Randal Roberts, who have woven together their artistic process to create a unified vision. Known also for their work as individuals, the duo uses their collaborative painting form as a metaphor for the ever-flowing continuation of the universe, and the love and light that radiates from the One: the singularity giving rise to multiplicity. Also, taking the stage is Alex Tomassian, a Colorado-based contemporary dancer of Block 1750 who uses her art to express a relationship between flow and control.
