  • Reeves Reed Arboretum 165 Hobart Avenue Summit, NJ, 07901 United States (map)

New Jersey Dance Theatre Ensemble (NJDTE) returns on August 2 for the third and final performance of this summer’s INKUBATE® series at Reeves-Reed Arboretum in Summit, NJ. The evening features dance works by choreographers Belinda McGuire and Bradley Beakes formerly of the iconic José Limón Dance Company, and the return of Elizabeth Roxas-Dobrish formerly of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

Since 2015, INKUBATE® has provided studio space to cutting-edge contemporary dance artists at NJDTE’s state-of-the-art, 8,800 square foot facility in downtown Summit that culminate in outdoor performances at the beautiful nearby Reeves-Reed Arboretum. NJDTE Artistic Director Nancy Turano says, “The vision of INKUBATE® is to build a bridge between dance and nature and break the traditional barrier between the artist and audience.” NJDTE provides renowned contemporary dance choreographers studio space as a think-tank, so they can grow their ideas into a body of work. In turn, these artists share their process and work in a participatory event in open sculpture gardens, inviting the attendees to move through the garden locations. INKUBATE® unites two extraordinary Summit-based organizations and brings many dance and nature aficionados of all ages to Summit.
