Nut/Cracked by David Parker & The Bang Group
Presented by Peter DiMuro / Public Displays of Motion, Dance Complex
A witty response to the Nutcracker, David Parker and The Bang Group’s Nut/Cracked has delighted audiences for more than a decade. Nut/Cracked takes its inspiration from all corners of the dance canon, from tap riffs to en pointe ballet, by way of bubble wrap, disco, and Chinese take-out noodles (consumed en pointe!). Choreographer David 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 orchestral suite. You’ll never watch the Nutcracker in quite the same way again!
