Choreographer and auteur Daniel Wilkins brings his experience of nearly 20 years of creating critically acclaimed work from NYC at Diane Von Furstenberg-The Theatre, Baryshnikov Arts Center, etc. to Seattle where his All 4 1 dancepalooza has celebrated contemporary dance and inspired hundreds of young dancers annually for nearly a decade to create a new Holiday tradition.
Seattle City Nutcracker takes us to the circus with a flying LED lit Mechanical Doll, black light AI 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.
This unabashedly contemporary production showcases Wilkins’ athletic All-Terrain melding of jazz, ballet, modern and acrobatics as well as tap and high flying aerial. DASSdance’s new Modern Day Nutcracker hopes to inspire a new generation to enjoy this timeless story.
