“The Knotcracker” follows the story of Little Miss Steps, a young girl trying to fit in. In typical Li Chiao-Ping Dance style, this imaginative, evening-length work is a unique blend of dance and theater, featuring adventurous choreography, humorous vignettes, and insightful works to entertain and inspire audience members of all ages. This whimsical program also has a strong message about accepting differences, resonating with recent, nationwide social problems. See Little Miss Steps solve this puzzle, putting the pieces together in her own way.
“The Knotcracker” premiered in December 2010 to sold-out crowds at Overture Center for the Arts. Critics hailed it as “poignant and laugh-out-loud funny,” and “Li’s holiday gift to the city.” The 2012 performance marked its 3rd year and featured a new cast of professional dancers, community dancers, and guests from Zhong Yi Kung Fu Association. Liz Sexe and Sarah Mitchell shared the principal role of Little Miss Steps on alternating performances.
