Odyssey Dance: The ReduxNut-Cracker Staff Pick

When: Mondays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Continues through Dec. 23 2014
Odyssey Dance has built its reputation on taking well-known work and giving it a lively modern-dance twist, whether that means the Halloween hijinks of Thriller or productions inspired by Romeo & Juliet and Giselle. This year marks the second year of Odyssey Dance taking the beloved holiday classic The Nutcracker to its own unique place. Using the original Tchaikovsky score, the company takes the tale of young Clara and brings it into the 21st century, as her imagination finds her pulled into her smartphone to find a world of robot tin soldiers and gangsta mice. By the time Herr Drosselmeyer pulls up in a DeLorean—and you've seen those beloved melodies you've heard a thousand times turned into the background for acrobatic hip-hop moves—you'll realize there's more than one way for a dance company to crack a nut.
