"Evans' choreography has all the compositional integrity, expressive narrative and shape based technique of the modern dance era, and her story telling through movement still resonates for today. This is the great dance that is happening right here in greater LA. This is the dance that makes you think, makes you stop and wonder about what you value and how you want to be in the world. Evans’ musicianship (as seen in others pieces as well) is embedded in her craft. Music, dance and expression all as one."
- Beth Megill, Dancing Poetess
“... a unique blend of narrative-based movement theater and a modern dance aesthetic sets NEDT apart.”
