March 28: This Sunday NAMBA Performing Arts Space kickstarts its’ return to regular programming with a monthly streaming event featuring musicians, dancers and improvisational theatre. Dubbed ‘IN PERFORMANCE Live’, the show is donation based and designed to re-engage a shuttered community in the power of artistic expression. Curated by Doc Ventura of Delta by the Beach, Cathy Butter formerly of Aloft Dance Theatre and Ventura College Dance, and Gary Best of Ventura Improv, IN PERFORMANCE Live is NAMBA’s collaborative expression of performance as a means to bridge rising waters in challenging times.
Due to on-going issues related to the pandemic and the nearly impossible restrictions on live performance, NAMBA has been shuttered to audiences for the last year. With vaccines and loosening restrictions, NAMBA is anticipating a return to live community service. Tamara Varney, Chairperson of NAMBA’s Board said, “NAMBA seeks to engage Community partners to safely access our Theatre, to energize performing arts disciplines and to deliver programs to the public.” To contact NAMBA, or for information on upcoming limited in-person dance and theatre classes, senior and youth programming, continued streaming/zooming opportunities for teachers and performers, as well as to register for IN PERFORMANCE Live, visit nambaarts.com.
