Inspired by the ballet classic “The Nutcracker”, TS Crew created The ChristMice Cracker for Tai Kwun Circus Plays 2021 – taking away the ballet steps and traditional theatre setting, opting for a local touch of Hong Kong culture. Revolving around the iconic battle scene from the ballet, the contemporary dance troupe re-imagined the epic story in the language of Chinese opera, circus, acrobatics and even beat-boxing. Adding to the excitement, street performance elements such as unicycles, stilts and fire-breathing are sprinkled across the outdoor show.
This video records the exhilarating performances in December and reveals how this unique work came into play. It is time to revisit the memorable moments together!
