About
Dance Centre Kenya is proud to introduce to you our fourth full length Nutcracker performance. This year, for the very first time in Kenya, we have a live Orchestra – The Nairobi Philharmonic – performing the full score of the Nutcracker together with the Ghetto Classics Children’s Choir as they accompany the ballet cast.

They will be under the baton of American Conductor Jonathan Rush joined by additional musicians coming from Europe. Paul Nduati, who has featured in the Kenyan classical music scene as a piano accompanist over the last 10 years, will be the orchestra’s pianist.

Dance Centre Kenya’s Artistic Director Cooper Rust is delighted to welcome international dancer Baris Erhan of the Turkish State Opera and Ballet, who will perform the role of the Sugar Plum Cavalier. Alongside him, on opening night only, Dance Centre Kenya’s own Joanna Priwieziencew will perform the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy with Artistic Director Cooper Rust performing the role of the Snow Queen.

Children will enjoy Sugar Plum Tea Parties one hour prior to all Sunday performances with juice, cupcakes and sweets plus the opportunity of a backstage tour and the chance to meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and the other characters from the ballet.

SYNOPSIS
Of Cords And Discord – is a dark humoured thrilling drama that explores how much baggage family relations can hold. From familial cords of siblings to those of couples, does love always conquer all? Joan has called her sister Jane to rush to her ‘could be breakdown’ after Ken (Joan’s celebrity husband) has been caught in another of his scandals. The sisters time together is a montage of nostalgic and heartfelt moments looped in chilling discoveries of their current predicament. Betrayal cuts deep – but so do knives.

The latest Prevail Arts Company production starring Veronica Waceke and Valentine Zikki assures of an ecstatic ride!

Described in the reviews as;
‘Absolutely wonderful! Martin Kigondu will go down as one of the best playwrights of our generation’ – Kenya Scriptwriters Guild.

‘Kigondu’s best whodunit yet’ – Business daily.
