SHORE is Emily Johnson/Catalyst’s new dance work. SHORE is the third in a trilogy of works that began with The Thank-you Bar and continued with Niicugni. SHORE is a multi-day performance installation of dance, story, volunteerism, and feasting. It is a celebration of the places where we meet and merge - land and water, performer and audience, art and community, past, present, and future.
Over the course of a week, SHORE includes Community Action (volunteerism), STORY (a curated reading); Performances (outdoor / indoor installation) at On the Boards; and a Feast (potluck celebration). To learn more about the SHORE premiere in Minneapolis in June 2014, see the short documentary here.
