THE HARLEM NUTCRACKER | Dec. 11-13, 2020
The Harlem Nutcracker is a two-act piece and the re-creation process of The Harlem Nutcracker will be carried out in 3 phases, with the main stage production set to debut in Seattle in 2021, on the 25th Anniversary of its premiere.
This year’s workshop production is phase 2 of the process and will focus on the second act called “Time Travel” where Death manifests flashbacks of Clara’s early years and chronicles the Black struggle for justice and equality from the 1920s to the death of George Floyd. The intention of the workshops is not to recreate the scale and opulence of the original production, but rather investigate and re-imagine the content in preparation for its new, Seattle audience. This re-imagining is especially important for Phase 2, as Donald Byrd and Company translate the production experience from live to virtual.
