Sounds of a Summer Night: New Jersey Dance Theatre Ensemble at Reeves-Reed Arboretum

Reeves-Reed Arboretum
165 Hobart Ave
Summit, NJ 07901

Artistic Director Nancy Turano’s New Jersey Dance Theatre Ensemble (NJDTE) will present its first public performance in its new community of Summit on Wednesday, July 29 at 7pm as part of the “Sounds of a Summer Night” concert series at Reeves Reed Arboretum. NJDTE dancers and guest artists from the NYC-based company VIM/VIGOR, led by NJDTE Artist-In-Residence Shannon Gillen, will bring the natural beauty of the Arboretum gardens to life with "After the Rain," a world premiere, site-specific dance installation.

This 60-minute immersive performance experience will, in Turano’s words, “take the viewer on an artistic journey through the gardens, creating human, sculptural labyrinths amidst the breathtaking natural setting.” The dancers become an integral part of the landscape as they guide the audience through installations in three distinct areas of the gardens, illuminating the timeless connection between nature and art.

Cost of tickets: $10 donation | Free for Reeves-Reed Arboretum members
