Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker from a different point of view – very refreshing, very unusual, very hip hop. This is what the French choreographer Bouba Landrille Tchouda makes out of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s romantic and moving composition. Together with his Compagnie Malka he interprets the classical ballet in a surprisingly modern way, adding music by Yvan Talbot and a lot of Hip Hop. Hip Hop is where Bouba Landrille Tchouda originally comes from and what enables him to create new perspectives on classical works we have never seen like that before.

The Nutcracker, Tchaikovsky‘s eternal classic, in the choreography by Vasily Vainonen, is a colorful and sensuous dance production: dance in the highest perfection and mastery of modern technology.
A group of children celebrate their confirmation in a Konditorei or Viennese cake shop, where many of the confections come alive, with marzipan marches and cocoa dances. Having overindulged, one boy falls ill and hallucinates, leading to the party of Princess Pralinée, a trio of amorous liquors, and a riot of cakes pacified by beer.
