SHORE: Homer at Tuggeght

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 a theater; and a festive, culminating potluck FEAST to which participants bring the stories and recipes of the dishes they bring to share.

"I embrace SHORE’s humble directives—take action; listen to one another’s stories; open your heart to dreams, dance, and song; feed one another; come together and celebrate—practice being in community." - Eleanor Savage, SHORE Essay

SHORE comes to Homer, Alaska June 9-13 at the Bunnell Arts Center. In Homer, SHORE will begin with a reading from local writers and continue with an action along Woodard Creek. SHORE performance will begin on Tuggeght (Bishop’s Beach), moving into Bunnell Arts Center. SHORE will culminate in a festive potluck feast at Tuggeght (Bishop’s Beach Park). Join us!
