Nevada Repertory Dance Theater inaugural First Friday performance...

The Nevada Repertory Dance Theater in partnership with the Vegas Valley Book Festival and Alios Gallery will be presenting the Literary Word through dance on First Friday. 

This will be Nevada Repertory Dance Theater first involvement with First Friday and the Vegas Valley Book Festival. The work that was created for this event was a collaborative effort by the company. Utilizing the tools of improvisation, music and the words of the immortal Dr. Seuss, the company created a short work that ties several artistic elements together. However, the program will differ slightly from the performance at Todd VonBastiaan's Alios Gallery to the Historic Fifth Street School.

On First Friday the NRDT will make use of the quirky, yet entertaining music from the movie “Horton Hears a Who”, with the possibility of some Dr. Seuss thrown in. Whereas on Sunday at the Historic Fitth Street School, during the Feast on Words event, Marko Westwood has joined forces with two of Las Vegas's finest poets, Mick Axelrod and Hyatt Mason, to blend together dance, music and spoken word. Mick and Hyatt will assist the company's performance by reading Green Eggs and Ham.

NRDT has begun building a foundation for dancers, choreographers, and the public to support dance and the arts in Las Vegas and beyond.

Nevada Repertory Dance Theater’s mission is to create, develop and perform the art of dance as conceived by choreographer Marko Westwood. In doing so, we strive to cultivate a passionate and captive audience in the Las Vegas valley that is inspired to appreciate all art forms.

Performances begin at 8pm on First Friday
