SHORE is the third in a trilogy of works that began with The Thank-you Bar and continued with Niicugni.

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