Nimbus Presents: Jersey City Nutcracker
December 10, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Nimbus Dance’s beloved Jersey City Nutcracker is back, and high on the list of must-see Jersey City holiday experiences! Presented for the first time ever at the new Nimbus Arts Center, Nimbus Dance will offer 12 performances of the quirky and lovable adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s timeless classic, which takes place in Jersey City and weaves together themes of magic, adventure, family, and friendship.
The highly acclaimed Nimbus Dance performs against a dazzling backdrop of full-scale sets and fantastical projections of illustrated scenes. Audiences are transported across the city – through parks, lively avenues, deserted alleyways, sewers (for an epic battle scene!) and back to the City Hall, with surprises, cheer, and a message of hope and resilience along the way.
Choreographed by Samuel Pott, with animated scenic projections by Jersey City-based video artists, Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger, and a delightful libretto co-written by Alysia Souder and Samuel Pott, Jersey City Nutcracker takes audiences on a magical shopping-cart-turned-sleigh-ride with twists and turns your whole family will enjoy!
Jersey City Nutcracker draws together a cast of Nimbus’ professional company dancers, 100+ youth from all over Jersey City, and local celebrities to present an unforgettable holiday experience. Debuting in the youth lead roles of Maria and Christopher/Christina are Michael Fuks (Arts High School, Newark), Alissa Colon (County Prep High School), Nola Walker (Snyder High School), and Elizabeth Volpert (Elysian Charter School).
The Jersey City Nutcracker is debuting on December 10, 2021 with several performances through December 23, 2021.
