                                                                       THE URBAN NUTCRACKER!

Founder and artistic director of Anita Davis Dance Theater, LaNita  Joseph brings cheer to Chicago with an Urban Nutcracker.

 

“Urban Nutcracker” tells the traditional “Nutcracker” story of a girl who dreams of a nutcracker, mice and toys coming to life and traveling the world, through urban, contemporary hip hop and pop music.

“It also features the ‘Sugar Plum Fairy’ as a b-boy break dancer (an acrobatic hip hop dancer), the mice as ‘hood rats’ and they travel to places such as Africa and Brazil, as opposed to China and Spain,” Joseph said.

 The Urban Nutcracker is co-sponsored by Global Voices, of International House at The University of Chicago, a program that supports cultural organizations that raise social awareness through arts and workshops. After performing at Sam Houston State University in Texas, Joseph’s company Anita Davis Dance Theater will be debuting it’s Chicago premiere, Sunday, December 19th at 3:00pm at the University of Chicago, at 1414 E. 59th street. Tickets are $10 dollars for general admission and $5 for kids in advance, $15 at the door.
In the spirit of the season Anita Davis Dance Theater is donating a portion of the proceeds to buy Christmas gifts for children living in foster homes in the city of Chicago.

 


  Anita Davis Dance Theater's first annual Urban Nutcracker will for sure be an absolutely entertaining, fun and exciting event!

Anita Davis Dance Theater

Anita Davis Dance Theater is a non-for profit performance/educational group that promotes a positive self image through theater art, media, poetry and dance. Our performances are as original and innovative as they are dynamic and conceptually strong. We always have a positive message and our goal is to inspire individuals to accept them selves as well as others. Our goal is to expose as many people as possible to this message, especially women, LGBTQ community people of color and in urban communities. In order for us to better reach people in underserved communities we have based our studio in the heart of the south side of Chicago. Anita Davis Dance Theater teaches workshops and performs throughout the city.
