ABOUT THE SHOW

"It's the familiar story of "The Nutcracker" but with a twist. On the eve of the Russian Revolution, a girl unravels the truth behind her dreams and nightmares as a mysterious stranger blurs fantasy and reality. Another twist: you enter her world as a guest at a holiday celebration, moving from room to room in her house to encounter objects and uncover family secrets as the roar of protesters filters in from outside.

. . .And the biggest twist of all:

you decide which of the play's actors to follow."

- Linda Lowen, SYRACUSE.com

Marie and the Nutcracker Prince is a wild retelling of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic Nutcracker story, set within a dreamscape Russia on the brink of revolution. Through contemporary movement, vocal and instrumental music, soundscape, and light, we are transported into Marie's world, and the boundary between imagination and reality blends irreversibly while political, familial, and mental unrest grows to a climax for the young woman and her country.  

 

Audience members experience multiple points of view as the story tumbles towards conclusion, all the while discovering hidden scenes and clues through their exploration of the world. As a touring piece, our site-adaptive show transforms from venue to venue, and gives each audience the chance to experience not only the story, but the venue, in unique and unexpected ways.
