what we do
THE BANG GROUP is a rhythm-driven, New York-based dance company which spans contemporary and percussive forms. The company, founded and directed by Jeffrey Kazin and David Parker in 1995, has toured and performed widely throughout North America and Europe.
Nut/Cracked was conceived in 2003 as a holiday in a fluid dance world where dance genres collide and jostle each other with a genial clamor in celebration of the winter holidays. Co-commissioned by Dance Theater Workshop in New York City and The Carlo Felice Opera House in Genoa, Italy, 2021 marked Nut/Cracked’s 19th consecutive season.

“It’s a perfect little dance because it’s not merely ridiculous: it has heart.” – Gia Kourlas, The New York Times 12/21/12
“Many troupes tout their fusion of styles, but Parker and company deliver the goods, from the elegant, and campy to the sly and delightful.” - Claudia La Rocco, Associated Press 12/16/04
