Open every Saturday in December leading up to Christmas, The December Store is the curatorial initiative of Vanessa Albury and Sörine Anderson.

The Nutcracker in a nutshell has always been snippets of memories of wooden toys and sugarplum fairies. I’m sure I’ll remember the Nutcracker: Rated R in very much the same way… except replace wooden toys with dildos and sugarplum fairies with “blow-fairies.” Ah, how we’ve evolved. If you love the ballet and are prepared for your new Nutcracker snippets to include the best of 1980’s punk, clouds of cocaine, pervert uncles, and oh yes, Firecrotch then this is the production for you!

By weaving hip hop, modern, and ballet together with an intriguing new perspective, this classic is sure to delight audiences of all ages and introduce every generation to The Nutcracker anew. Snowflakes, sugarplums, and a grand pas de duex will capture your heart as they have since childhood, while contemporary choreography makes Peridance's Nutcracker unlike any you've seen before!
