Nut/Cracked 10th Anniversary
The Bang Group
Live Stream: Sat, Dec 22 at 2pm
A comic/subversive, neo-vaudeville version of The Nutcracker, Nut/Cracked returns to Live Arts for its 10th Anniversary performances! A journey into innocence through sustained fantasy,Nut/Cracked incorporates an enterprising mix of tap, ballet, contemporary, disco and even toe tap. The work’s 22 sections are accompanied by a mix of popular, jazz and novelty versions of the score and the traditional orchestral suite. By the end of the show, the cast has danced their way to a new kind of childhood replete with a thumb-sucking fantasia to the Grand Pas de Deux. In addition to The Bang Group, each show features a different group of teenage guest artists from dance schools throughout New York City.
