THE MOTHER LINE STORY PROJECT is a storytelling platform specifically designed to bring together generations of women to tell the stories of their maternal ancestors through the creation of new, self-devised work-think The Moth Radio Hour meets During a series of workshops, an ever-expanding cast of storytellers works with guest directors and designers to curate one-of-a-kind performances, in which the triumphs and traumas of the women who came before can be spoken, heard, and celebrated. Universal appeal meets personal power in this show by women, about women, for everyone.

HIPS HANDS TONGUE is a story about embodiment, or coming into being, told through dance, interactive sensory world making, and oral storytelling conceived and performed by Alicia Raquel.

SANCTUARY is a part of SubletSeries@HERE: a curated rental program, which provides artists with subsidized space and equipment, as well as technical support.
