Nasae Evanson - Leaves C-12 Dance Theatre

Creative Director and Co-Founder of C-12 Dance Theatre, Nasae Evanson has stepped down his involvement with the company with immediate effect, 19th Feb 2013.   This decision was made on the grounds of Nasae’s request to pursue personal projects but will continue to be supported by fellow company directors Annie-Lunnette Deakin-Foster and Adam Towndrow for his individual endeavours.

Nasae will be most fondly remembered performing the lead character in The Chair, C and duet, ONE. Evanson pursued choreographic projects for C-12 Dance Theatre, including Breed, Stealth and Park Life, an outdoor production based around a sculpture at Potters Field Park entitled Powder Blue by Toby Paterson. Within his time at C-12 since 2005, he developed fantastic relationships with East London Dance who have been fundamental in assisting C-12 get to where they are today and Nasae also supported Wayne McGregor in 2012 during Big Dance

The name C-12, came from Nasae, a science enthusiast. Nasae was the sole founding member when the desire took him to start a company while completing his degree at Middlesex University. Nasae asked Annie-Lunnette and Adam to be a part of his vision of creating inspirational dance theatre that would create a new atmosphere into the performing arts community.  His passion for young people and his personable nature was admired within the dance community and to that end Annie-Lunnette and Adam would like to wish Nasae all the very best in the future.

This shift in directorship will see a slight change in roles with the company.  C-12 Dance Theatre is delighted to announce that Annie-Lunnette Deakin-Foster will be the Artistic Director of the company and Adam Towndrow as Creative Producer. Annie-Lunnette and Adam successfully received Arts Council funding to create The Van Man in 2012, received funding from Without Walls to create and produce Trolleys choreographed by Award Winning Australian Choreographer Shaun Parker in 2012, and most recently received Arts Council funding to create a new indoor show Shhh! in 2013. C-12 Co-founders set their sights high and are extremely grateful of where they have come from, the journey this path has taken them on and are very excited to begin a new chapter in their continued artistic adventures.

Nasae would like to thank Annie-Lunnette and Adam for the love and support over the years and will always look back fondly to C-12 and refer to that chapter of his life as a great adventure.

Kind regards,

C-12 Dance Theatre
