The Mother Line Story Project

A storytelling collective and incubator for female expression. The project brings together generation of performers to tell the stories of their maternal ancestors through the creation of new, self-devised work. Participants write and perform two minute monologues in the first person voice of their mother, or her mother, or her mother's mother etc... Thus exploring their mother line. The stories are then shared through our youtube channel, podcast, and live performances. By amplifying women's voices, past and present, we aim to foster artists' connections to their own creativity as well as build an environment which continuously supports and renews that creativity.

We've got big news. Mother Line is planning to take on the world in 2019. So, we decided to through a party to celebrate our community, honor where we came from, and get ready for what's next.

Please join us at beautiful Town Stages as we amplify women's voices, look to the future, and eat cake! Festive Attire Please.

There will be fancy celebrities, the announcement of the 2019 Mother Line season, the naming of our Matron of Honor, and a world premier Mother Line performance.

Gotham Rock Choir

GOTHAM ROCK CHOIR (GRC) is New York City’s first choir devoted exclusively to the performance of Pop, Rock and Soul music.Founded in 2009, GRC was formed to provide an outlet for vocalists of all levels and backgrounds to explore contemporary music in a supportive and fun environment, to provide an alternative to the city’s many traditional choirs, and to bring a much-needed sense of “cool” to choral singing.

The Choir is comprised of 50-60 members and attracts a variety of vocalists from all walks of life–everything from from show business professionals to avid shower singers. Despite our disparate backgrounds, all of our members have one thing in common: a real passion for singing.

GRC’s repertoire is drawn from the history of Pop music, from 1960 to today, and focuses primarily on Rock, Pop, Soul and related genres. Some of the music we’ve performed includes songs originally by artists such as Elton John, Green Day, Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, Jackie Wilson, Kings of Leon, Stevie Wonder, Queen, The Beatles, Journey, Madonna and many others.

Positive Exposure: Celebrating ALL Differences

Unprotected legal status of immigrants. Football players turned activists. Environmental destruction and the rise of the alt right in political power. But this isn’t Trump’s 2018, but a small organic farm in rural Wisconsin in 2011. The middle class has long been disappearing. Democracy has long been corroding. This farm, a bastion of idealism surrounded by cynicism, is a home for people who have nowhere else to go. So what happens when it’s gone?
