NEDT performs and teaches throughout the year locally, and abroad. Check below for upcoming dates.
Fate and the Heroine: Dido, Queen of Carthage
Saturday, March 16 at 6PM
Norton Simon Museum, Pasadena, CA
Nancy Evans Dance Theatre explores through dance, music, art and text the tragic love story between Dido, Queen of Carthage, and Prince Aeneas of Troy from Virgil’s epic poem the Aeneid. Branching off from Virgil’s tale, this powerful performance tells the tale of Dido from her perspective. Following the performance, audience members enjoy a question-and-answer period with the choreographer and dancers.

Figures of Speech
Sunday, April 7 at 4PM
Linda M. Grinstead Theatre at La Salle High School 3880 E Sierra Madre Blvd, Pasadena, CA
NEDT’s second annual presentation of Figures of Speech, ac concept born of a prompt from Nancy Evans Doede designed to challenge company members to create new material that would mix text and dance without speaking out loud. Each member was given a figure of speech (ie. irony, simile, paradox, etc.) and asked to choose an example from a book or play, or a stanza from a poem to use as inspiration for any or all aspects of their work.
