The Revolutionary Nutcracker Sweetie - The Kidz Version
Dance Brigade presents THe Revolutionary Nutcracker Sweetie - The Kidz Version
Featuring Grrrl Brigade, Nol Simonse, Sonya Smith, Sarah Bush, Stella Adelman, Bruce "Mui" Ghent, Leila Baradaran, Fredrika Keefer, Tina Banchero and Dance Mission's Youth Program.
From 1987 to 1997 Dance Brigade produced their annual production of the Revolutionary Nutcracker Sweetie in Oakland. Over ten years, it reached a total of 40,000 audience members and was a beloved community institution. Dance Brigade decided to remount it again starting in 2007 only this time at the Brava Theater in San Francisco and featuring Dance Mission's Youth Program.
In Krissy Keefer's Revolutionary Nutcracker Sweetie, Clara is an undocumented worker who works for the wealthiest family in town, the McGreeds. Our story opens just as the biggest bash of the year is beginning - the McGreed's holiday party. To the McGreeds' dismay, their wayward gay son, a pink Mohawk-sporting, Che-shirt wearing Drosselmeyer, crashes the party and gives Clara a freedom-fighting Nutcracker doll from South Africa. Together Clara and the Nutcracker go on a journey of self-discovery and realization where they run into a homeless Sugar Plum Fairy, an Angel of Resistance, and a Snow Queen mourning the melting of the Ice Caps. Where else would you find ariel dance, Spy Mice and a magical Under Water World? Why only at the Revolutionary Nutcracker Sweetie!!
The Revolutionary Nutcracker Sweetie uses Taiko, Tap, Modern, Trapeze, Belly Dance, Salsa, Ballet, Bungee, Salsa and Hip Hop to tell its story and address contemporary concerns such as global warming and consumerism with humor and artistry. The production is fantastic for those who are looking for a winter activity but are not in the mood for another year of "A Christmas Carol."
