Delighting audiences for nearly 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 each other with a genial clamor in celebration of the winter holidays. Choreographer David Parker liberates The Nutcracker from its 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 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 take-out noodles, with modern and post-modern dance, disco, social forms and pure invention.

Nut/Cracked features Chelsea Ainsworth, Dylan Baker, Louise Benkelman, Alex Biegelson, Clarence Brooks, Derek Crescenti, Erin Gottwald, Holly Jones, Jeffrey Kazin, Isaac Lerner, Alison Manning, Daniel Morimoto, Kimberly Murry, Nik Owens, David Parker, Amber Sloan, Tommy Seibold, and special guest dancers from The Steffi Nossen School of Dance & dancers from e.g. dance.

Music by P.I. Tchaikovsky with arrangements by Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Fred Waring & the Pennsylvanians, Raymond Scott Quintet, Westminster Bell Choir, The London Symphony Orchestra, The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden.

Produced by The Bang Group, choreographed by David Parker, rehearsal direction by Erin Gottwald, and lighting design by Jay Ryan.
