David Parker, founder/choreographer of The Bang Group, and Keith Michael, choreographer for New York Theatre Ballet, are thrilled to present a unique, live presentation of “The Nutcracker/Cracked,” December 18-20 at Arts on Site, 12 St. Mark’s Place.  Also longtime off-stage partners, the choreographers will present a charmer for children and adults to brighten the holiday season featuring excerpts from the Nutcracker party scene, choreographed by Keith Michael and danced by New York Theatre Ballet; and excerpts from David Parker’s Nut/Cracked and danced by The Bang Group.

Blending ballet, disco, and other unexpectable delights of dance and music, David Parker’s Nut/Cracked, has been a Holiday favorite for almost two decades, inspiring and amusing audiences here and abroad.
