It’s Not Cracker

December 16 - 17, 2016


It’s Not Cracker, the title of NOW-ID’s contemporary, abbreviated rendition of The Nutcracker, evokes the original in familiarity and seasonality, but states that it will be different, contemporary, unique, fun, diverse and serious too.

The Tchaikovsky suite will be extended, mixed and added to by DJ Artemis, paired with dancers Brad Beakes, Tara McArthur and a B-Boy Federation corps. Join NOW-ID on December 16/17 downstairs in Utah Museum of Contemporary Art’s main gallery (amid the works of OBJECT(ED), in its final days) for gløgg and choreography by Charlotte Boye-Christensen and more. Dynamic contrasts in setting, music and dance will be staged within the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art’s main gallery.
