Motherlodge Performance Series Mar/29 - Apr/05

The first Motherlodge Performance Series starts this Sunday. As I can't beat the words that the mission statement dishes out, I will let it and the festival itenary speak for itself below. 

Motherlodge Mission Statement A live art exchange...

Motherlodge is a diverse programming of theater, music, film, readings, and solo performance aimed at creating new possibilities for how artists, entertainers, and educators can collaborate in local communities. Our goal is to provide the means for artists to have as much influence over the programs in which their works are presented, and to inspire new paths of creativity by partnering for events with unexpected venues and organizations. We also solicit content for Motherlodge from a web based community that spans award winning artists and writers, high school students, and retirees. In 2009, through a partnership with, organizers will launch an online network channel and establish Motherlodge Louisville and Motherlodge NYC.
