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.

- “... as likely to kick some poetry as break out into a capella singing, to orchestrate a vocal exercise as they are to burst into a step show... Their energy and realness is unmatchable.” --The Village Voice
Last seen in Los Angeles with Slanguage, the multitalented artists of Universes return to the city with Live from the Edge, an evening that showcases the ensemble’s special brand of fusion theater. The group breaks the bounds of traditional theater to create their own brand of performance, blending poetry, theater, jazz, hip-hop, politics, down-home blues and Spanish boleros to create vibrant and thrilling theatrical pieces.
Live from the Edge is a “best of” evening that tracks the evolution of the group's poetic language--from childhood rhymes and community rituals to poetry, theater, hip-hop and gospel. A truly unique performance event that turns the poem into a communal act, Universes is redefining what theater is and who it speaks to.
