Tune in for the premiere of Neville Dance Theatre's latest digital dance piece created during quarantine, "Vexations of Idleness" is a reflection on our frustrations incited by feelings of helplessness from our diminished ability to actively respond to the needs of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic due to stay-at-home orders. 

Concept and video by Brenda Neville. Content and performances by dancers Hayley Clark, Laura Dearman, Cheyenne Fitzsimons, Ally Sacks, Lauren Settembrino, Michelle Siegel and Tanya Trombly.

_________________________

Hailed as "compelling," "imaginative," and "pure delight" by both critics and reviewers, Neville Dance Theatre, a non-profit Manhattan based dance company, excels in bringing diverse dance elements together to create theatrical, innovative works that are a colorful tapestry of movement which explore our shared world and the vastness of the human spirit.

Through contemporary creations to full length ballets this vibrant company enlists the limitlessness of dance as a means of international expression and communication celebrating the similarities and differences of diverse cultures from around the world.

Founded in 2005 by Brenda R. Neville, the Manhattan-based company of 6-12 dancers and guests perform New York City seasons, concerts, festival performances, touring engagements, and online programming for audiences of all ages and persuasions. Founded as a means of opening cross-cultural dialogues between differing dance genres and nationalities, Neville Dance Theatre fosters an artistic exchange of styles, outlooks, and attitudes, instilling an appreciation for the beauty, value, and significance of dance as a living art form for today and generations to come.

Neville Dance Theatre is a 501(c)3 non-profit tax-exempt organization.
