"Not only immensely entertaining but also intensely musical and witty, melding tap, disco, ballet and
contemporary dance...Combines fantasy and silliness to marvelous effect."
Roslyn Sulcas, The New York Times
Fasten your seat belts --- THE BANG GROUP'S notorious holiday Nut/Cracked returns for its 16th Anniversary Season. David Parker's comic, subversive, neo-vaudeville version of "The Nutcracker" will return for three performances, December 20-22, at The Flea in downtown Manhattan.
Nut/Cracked is The Bang Group's beloved, witty response to "The Nutcracker." The one-hour work takes its inspiration from all corners of the dance canon, from tap riffs to en pointe ballet, with side trips into the worlds of disco, bubble wrap, and Chinese take-out noodles. In Nut/Cracked, choreographer Parker finds beauty in the ridiculous, waltzing us through many incarnations of Tchaikovsky's score, including versions by Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller, as well as the traditional orchestra suite.
