Catalyst Celebrates 15 Years of Dancemaking with a Preview Party and Benefit Sunday September 29, 3 - 7pm at Northrop Plaza

We are celebrating 15 years of making performance work with a SHORE preview party and benefit.

SHORE is Emily Johnson / Catalyst's new performance project, the third part of the Trilogy of works that began with The Thank-you Bar and continued with Niicugni. It will premiere at Northrop Auditorium next June. SHORE will be a multi-day performance installation of dance, story, volunteerism, and feasting. It will be a celebration of the place where we meet and merge - land and water, performer and audience, art and community, past, present, and future.

Help us raise $20, 000 to create this work!

Come to the SHORE preview party and benefit, celebrate with us and help us make SHORE possible.
