The SlutcrackerⓇ is a retelling of The Nutcracker, Tchaikovsky's famed 1890s ballet, “Casse Noisette”, or “The Nutcracker”, in fabulous feminist form. While the story has been altered to chronicle Clara's sexual empowerment, the original structure of the ballet has been well-preserved and remains true to its artistic integrity.
Due to COVID-19, The SlutcrackerⓇ, now in its 13th season, has been moved to an online streaming platform. Slutcracker: The Movie, featuring archival footage from the 2019 season interwoven and edited into cinematic format, will be available for audiences across the globe to watch from the comfort of their own home starting this Thanksgiving. It will be $12 per device to watch the show online.
The SlutcrackerⓇ brings together ballet dancers, burlesque performers, hula hoopers, belly dancers, and so many others with interests in flamenco, hip hop, pole, acting, and myriad dance forms. The production is directed and choreographed by Vanessa White who creates dance-theater stage shows, typically with a political/feminist bent and which embrace diversity across several spectra including race, gender, genre, and body type.
