A very COVID Christmas: cozy up on your couch and join Peter DiMuro/Public Displays of Motion and THE BANG GROUP for an offbeat holiday show, COVID style.
Cultivating some holiday nostalgia, Boston-based Peter DiMuro/Public Displays of Motion will broadcast excerpts from the 2019 production of Funny Uncle Cabaret, in addition to premiering new works - both pre-recorded and live - that speak to a COVID Currier and Ives holiday season. New York City’s THE BANG GROUP, directed by David Parker and Jeffrey Kazin, will share excerpts from their critically-acclaimed Nutcracker remix, Nut/Cracked, reworked for the times with a smaller and socially spaced cast. As always, each production turns the idea of a typical holiday show on its head. With Funny Uncle Cabaret, DiMuro and his team of collaborators and guest artists celebrate chosen families over the ones we are born to. Nut/Cracked shuffles along the edge of silly and sublime with feet donned in tapping toe shoes, reconstructing - with wit and charm - how we hear Tchaikovsky’s traditional score.
Funny Uncle Cabaret and Nut/Cracked will stream live on Zoom on Sunday December 20, 2020 from 3-4:30pm, with re-broadcasts planned between Christmas and New Year’s Day.
Featuring the dancers of Peter DiMuro/Public Displays of Motion, The Bang Group, and guest artists. Tickets available online, sliding scale $5-$20.
