An authentic Russian Christmas puppet play and Masha's magical toy cabinet are new for 2014 as the Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker comes to Cupertino for the holiday season. Experience all the wonder and beauty of this stunning production with its gorgeous Swarovski crystal-laden costumes, life-sized matrushka dolls, 10-foot tall silk puppets and a special "Dove of Peace" formation, where two dancers become one bird with a 20-foot wingspan. This is your chance to see the award-winning principal dancers and corps de ballet perform Olympic-worthy leaps, lifts and pirouettes as they tell the heartwarming tale of Masha meeting her prince.

An amazing performance using the hip hop dance vocabulary to create a unique and artistic multimedia experience. Everyone invloved in the project is incredibly talented: the choreographer, the dancers, the musicians, the sound and visual technicians. Following the show, the audience was invited to stay for a Q&A discussion with Rennie Harris. Valuable insight into the mind of this culturally significant artist!
Hip hop street dance explodes onto the stage, as Rennie Harris Puremovement brings its provocative and controversial new work to YBCA for the first time. In Facing Mekka, YBCA Wattis Artist-in-Residence Harris leads us away from the usual secularity of hip hop to an engagement with deeper spiritual questions, presenting an alternative and compassionate vision of a troubled world and the means to heal if we will take it. At times disturbing, often joyful and always provocative, Harris is both the master and the innovator of this most vital of contemporary art forms.
