Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Conceived by Martha Tornay and directed by Tornay and Victoria Roberts-Wierzbowski, this production sets its Nutcracker in the East Village, where a child and a PTSD-stricken vet visit neighborhood landmarks and learn to heal. Youth performers for the East Village Dance Project, ages 4 to 19, are joined by more than a dozen professional guest dancers and choreographers, including Detroit-based dance artists Shaina and Bryan Baira and New Mexico's Project in Motion.
