This production of the classic Nutcracker story is set in Seattle, and has both local flair, and imaginative, captivating dancing. Seattle City Nutcracker takes us to the circus with a flying LED lit Mechanical Doll, a black light AI Robot Battle scene, a very slippery snow scene complete with figure skaters (on Heelys), and a land of the sweets that travels across the globe from Qatar to Ukraine, India to China. Featuring performances by special guest star Crystal Serrano of Dance Theatre of Harlem, and African Flowers danced by the exciting hip hop talents of Kutt'N'Up choreographed by Koach T Giggz.
This unabashedly contemporary production showcases Wilkins' athletic All-Terrain melding of jazz, ballet, modern and acrobatics as well as tap and high flying aerial arts. DASSdance's modernized Nutcracker will inspire a new generation to enjoy this timeless story.
