MANCC Releases Emily Johnson “SHORE” Research in 2014

Published June 20, 2014

In March, FSU students participated in Emily Johnson’s SHORE residency at MANCC. The newly released residency video has been recently released.


MANCC welcomed Emily Johnson, Returning Choreographic Fellow, on March 7-22, 2014.
Emily Johnson returned to MANCC to develop her latest work, SHORE, the third in the trilogy of works developed at MANCC that include The Thank-you Bar and Niicugni (Listen). Johnson began work on the Bessie-award winning piece The Thank-you Bar at MANCC in 2009 and premiered Niicugi (Listen) as part of Tallahassee’s Seven Days of Opening Nights in the Fall of 2012.

SHORE is a multi-day performance/installation of four equal parts: dance, story, volunteerism, and feasting. It is a place audiences choose to visit once or many times, as participants or observers. 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.
