New English Ballet Theatre (NEBT) and special guests are to present Dancing For Nepal, four special performances at London’s St James Theatre in August to raise funds for the Nepal earthquake relief effort.

This unique show features several of NEBT’s own works by choreographers such as The Royal Ballet’s Valentino Zucchetti and Kristen McNally and former Dutch National Ballet dancer Daniela Cardim Fonteyne. On top of that there’s a smattering of other pieces by artists including Alastair Marriott (who recently created both Connectome and Zeitgeist on Natalia Osipova). In fact, The Royal Ballet are involved in other ways too – dancers such as Olivia Cowley, Gary Avis and new Company member Chisato Katsura are all scheduled to make appearances alongside NEBT’s own dancers.

Dancing For Nepal aims to raise funds for the Nepal Earthquake Recovery Appeal 2015 (NERA), set up by Alison Marston, Head of Grants and Philanthropy at the Bulldog Trust. The donations will be directed towards grassroots NGOs in Nepal providing vital mid-term recovery through the monsoon season.

This is a most special evening, combining all that is beautiful, artistic and poignant to help those in the greatest need. I cannot think of a finer way of raising money than Dancing for Nepal. ” – Joanna Lumley OBE FRGS

Dancing For Nepal runs from 20-22 August 2015. Tickets are available on the St James Theatre website.
