Brooklyn Ballet
Nutcracker
December 14 at 2pm and 7pm.
The Kings Theatre

This ballet champions diversity, authenticity and inclusion in ways that no other production does. From White, Black, Asian, Latin, Middle Eastern, and even Native American artists dancing together on stage, The Brooklyn Nutcracker is also taking a closer look at music and characters made famous from Tchaikovsky’s work. The angels now float across a subway platform as hip hop’s top pop n’ lockers, and the marzipan shepherdesses dance alongside a line of rhythmic and articulate African dancers. The long and lithe ballerina often cast in the Arabian Coffee is a traditional middle eastern belly dancer, and the politically incorrect Chinese Tea now represented by authentic Chinese dancers from the Red Dance Studio. In addition to the Brooklyn Ballet company dancers the production will also welcome artist Nakotah La Rance, an award winning Native American hoop dancer from OhKay Owingeh Pueblo.

ZVIDANCE
Presents the World Premiere of
MAIM (Water in Hebrew)
at New York Live Arts
December 18-21, 2019 @ 7:30PM
New York Live Arts

ZVIDANCE presents the World Premiere of MAIM from December 18-21, 2019 at New York Live Arts, 219 W. 19th Street, NYC.

MAIM sets out to raise awareness to issues related to the global diminishing water resources due to global warming. Israeli Zvi Gotheiner grew up in Kibbutz Messilot on the slopes of Mount Gilboa, where King David cursed the land with no rain or dew in his biblical mourning elegy to his beloved Jonathan. Droughts, water shortage and the need for water conservation were powerful tensions in Gotheiner's early years, epitomized by the government's slogan "Every Drop Counts." Later, Gotheiner would learn the significant role water, or lack thereof, played into the war politics of the region. This year, four million people in Cape Town, South Africa, will stand in line surrounded by armed guards to collect drinking water. And in Mexico City, many of the 21 million residents will only have running water part of the day... and these are only two examples for a growing global trend of water shortage. To bring awareness to such man-made devastation, Gotheiner will anchor his artistic investigation to his personal experience.

General admission tickets are $25 ($20 for students and seniors) and can be purchased at https://newyorklivearts.org/event/maim/ or by phone at 212-691-6500. Performances: Wed.-Fri. at 7:30pm, Sat. at 2pm and 7:30pm. Opening Night Gala tickets are $100 and are available at http://www.zvidance.com/tickets/.
