Namba Performing Arts Space

Share the Love Dance: Cathy Butter
Share the Love Comedy: Gary Best and Becky Haycox

NAMBA Performing Arts Space, Inc. announces a new bi-weekly presentation of music, dance, and theater; ‘IN PERFORMANCE’ Live features music, dance and comedy theater navigated by three local performing arts professionals; Doc Ventura of Delta Blues Band, Cathy Butter of Aloft Dance Theatre and Ventura College Dance and Gary Best of Ventura Improv.

“It’s time to re-engage our enthusiasm for performing artists,” said Tamara Varney, Chair of the Board of Directors at NAMBA. “The pandemic took the audience and the performer out of the theater, but the muse cannot be crushed. Until we are able to congregate, NAMBA will continue to support performers via our digital streaming platform ‘IN PERFORMANCE’”.

The ‘IN PERFORMANCE’ streaming series kick-starts the return of Namba’s thriving arts community. Each discipline, curated by a seasoned professional, will explore little-known and must-see nuances in a voyage of discovery for each show. Host Doc Ventura plans a production where ‘the music flows smartly, the vibe is unique, and the showmanship superb’. Doc will be joined by Cathy Butter and Gary Best to bring dance movement and laughter into your rooms.

NAMBA Performing Arts Space hosts an array of compelling Music, Theater, Dance, and Performance that reminds people that  NAMBA continues to showcase the Arts.

Julia Campbell Namba shares the compelling back story of how NAMBA Performing Arts Space came to be, as a legacy project by and for her late husband, Ben Namba (1930-2020).

Like Julia, Ben was a generous & longtime supporter of the arts in Ventura, California and elsewhere.
