SANCTUARY, a home for feminist/queer/minority voices continues its residence at HERE where it opened on Inauguration Day. SANCTUARY is a pop-up venue for artists and activists to come together as a community and respond to current events, in particular the fears and anxieties felt in anticipation of the coming administration.

SANCTUARY has transformed the mainstage at HERE into an immersive venue that draws on the history of activist/counter culture spaces. Audiences and artists alike commiserate, process, grieve, organize, learn, and ultimately unite in celebration of the values we refuse to let America turn its back on. The schedule includes new theatre works; panel discussions with major arts leaders; and a variety of dance, concert, and other non-traditional works.

One of the highlights of the series is PUSSY SLUDGE by Gracie Gardner with Less Than Rent Theatre. In this absurd comedy, Greenwich, Connecticut is a swamp. There's a radio station. An insurance office. And a woman menstruating crude oil. An exploration of shame, chance encounters, and the unkindness of doctors.

SANCTUARY is presented and created by Adam Salberg and Jonathan Cottle in association with Less Than Rent Theatre. The presented works were selected by Azure D Osborne-Lee, Debra Morris, Jenna Grossano (LTR), and Adam Salberg. The venue is designed by Jonathan Cottle. The production manager is Hillary Luong. This production is a part of the Sublet Series@HERE, HERE's curated rental program, which provides artists with subsidized space and equipment, as well as technical support.

Tickets for SANCTUARY performances are $20, available for purchase online at here.org or 212-352-3101. HERE is located at 145 Sixth Avenue, enter on Dominick one block South of Spring Streeet.
