MNSHORE is the third in a trilogy of works that began with The Thank-you Bar and continued withNiicugni. SHORE expands beyond the theater into the world, and 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 volunteer actions in partnership with community organizations, a curated reading by local authors, theatrical performances that begin outdoors and move into the theater, and a festive, culminating potluck/Feast. SHORE premieres as part ofNorthrop's grand re-opening celebrations in June 2014, in conjunction with the Dance USA conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. Tickets onsale now!
