The Bang Group presents the 20th annual production of "Nut/Cracked"
The Bang Group
Delighting audiences for two decades, Nut/Cracked is The Bang Group’s beloved, witty response to The Nutcracker, conceived as a fluid dance world where genres collide and jostle one another with a genial clamor in celebration of the winter holidays.
Choreographer David Parker liberates The Nutcracker from plot and tradition and seeks for it a new identity as a free-wheeling, genre-fluid vaudeville which breaks apart elements of the holiday season: surprise, anticipation, greed, community, generosity, and delight, all in a series of dances drawing inspiration from all corners of the dance canon — tap riffs and en pointe ballet by way of bubble wrap, disco, and Chinese takeout noodles, with modern and postmodern dance, disco, social forms, and pure invention.
Incorporating many incarnations of Tchaikovsky’s score, including versions by Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller, as well as the traditional orchestral suite, you’ll never watch The Nutcracker in quite the same way again!
