SHORE in Lenapehoking (NYC)


SHORE is the third in a trilogy of works that began with the New York Dance and Performance "Bessie" award-winning The Thank-you Bar and continued with the ten-city tour of Niicugni.

SHORE expands beyond the theater into the world. Over the course of a week, SHORE includes four equal parts: COMMUNITY ACTION (volunteerism) in partnership with community organizations; STORY (a curated reading); PERFORMANCE that begins outdoors and moves into the theater; and a festive, culminating potluck FEAST to which participants bring the stories and recipes of the dishes they bring to share.
