Brooklyn Information & Culture
Brooklyn Ballet presents The Brooklyn Nutcracker, transforming traditional characters and scenes to represent the diverse cultures of Brooklyn—from the Dutch colony to today’s Flatbush Avenue. The repertory, guided by Artistic Director Lynn Parkerson, reflects a multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural approach to ballet, and the dances are created through collaborations with musicians, writers, designers, hackers and visual artists. The smart textile costumes for the Waltz of the Flowers were a collaboration with Interwoven Design Group’s Rebeccah Pailes-Friedman, Lynn Parkerson and artistic director Avram Finkelstein.
