Hip Hop Nutcracker featuring Kurtis Blow, Virtual Student Matinee

November 29 - December 17, 2021

A holiday mash-up for the whole family, directed and choreographed by Jennifer Weber, The Hip Hop Nutcracker recorded live at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center is a contemporary dance spectacle set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless music. A unique and joyfulevent, this evening-length production is performed by a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers, a DJ, aviolinist, and MC Kurtis Blow, one of hip hop’s founding fathers, who opens the show with a short set. Just likethe original, in The Hip Hop Nutcracker, Maria-Clara and the Nutcracker Prince go on a dream adventure battling a gang of mice, visiting the land of sweets and learning the lessons of the holiday season. Innovative digital graffiti and visuals transform the landscape of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s beloved story from traditional 19th Century Germany to the vibrant, diverse sights and sounds of contemporary New York City.Through this re-mixed and re-imagined version of the classic, the dynamic performers of The Hip Hop Nutcracker take us on a journey.
