The Hip Hop Nutcracker
Dec 23, 2016 @ 7:30pm - 9:30pm
THE HIP HOP NUTCRACKER is an evening-length production performed by a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers, DJ and violinist. Through the spells cast by the mysterious Drosselmeyer, Maria-Clara and her Nutcracker prince travel back in time to the moment when her parents first meet in a nightclub. Digital scenery transforms E.T.A. Hoffmann's story of a palace of sugarplums into a romance set in 1980's Brooklyn. The dance work celebrates love, community and the magic of New Year's Eve.
