Marching toy soldiers, waltzing snowflakes, mischievous mice and Tchaikovsky's unforgettable score are quintessential hallmarks of the holidays. Celebrate the season with Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's student production of The Nutcracker, a holiday ballet for the whole family. Featuring dancers of all ages, The Nutcracker tells the story of young Clara, who receives a gift of a wooden nutcracker doll at her parents' Christmas party. That night, she dreams her nutcracker comes to life and together they battle the wicked Mouse King and journey through an enchanted forest of snow to reach the Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy and all her sweet subjects await them.

This "together sensation" is unlike anything I've ever attended. Granted, not every piece was as effective or as personally affecting to me, but that's simply a question of taste. The fascinating part is how each composition grew out of and was inspired by its predecessor. I hope this becomes a new & repeated way to make art.
“Synesthesia” is a multi-medium art show displaying how eight artists of different genres inspire each other. The first artist was asked to select a fortune cookie. They have two weeks to create a piece inspired by the fortune. The next artist will then see that creation and will have two weeks to design his own piece inspired by the artist before him (never having seen the fortune).
The next artist in the series will interpret that piece and then has two weeks to create a piece of his own. The next artist will interpret THAT piece and in two weeks will create his work from there. Then another artist interprets the preceding piece and the process will continue for four months involving a total of eight performing artists.
This game of “creative telephone” will culminate in an evening of their work performed live, in-sequence. The transitions will consist of a video montage of moments in response to the artist who just performed and glimpses into the initial impulses that sparked the inspiration of the next piece to come.
