Reworking a Holiday Favourite

By Sarah Lochhead

In 2016, in celebration of Xing Dance Theatre’s thirtieth anniversary and an eight-year sabbatical from their previous production of The Nutcracker, choreographer Xing Bang Fu and French Canadian professional ballet dancer Simon Sylvain Lalonde presented a new interpretation of the classic holiday tale with the intention of exploring the boundaries of gender and identity entitled The Nutcracker Doll. This year’s production of the work focuses on the central theme of parenting, exploring how a parent can guide a child to confront personal challenges and realize their own ways to express themselves.
