Emily Johnson/Catalyst


One of the odder phenoms in the dance world is Bessie­-winning Emily Johnson, whose Shore brings to Lenape-hoking (a/k/a New York City) a multi-­day performance installation of dance, story, volunteerism, and feasting that promises to blur “distinctions between performance and daily life.” Originally from Alaska and now based in Minneapolis, Johnson integrates art-­making and community activism, working collaboratively with community partners from all over the region. Shows Thursday through Saturday are just part of the mix; she choreographs, Ain Gordon directs, and dozens of others participate.
