Turkey tales in 'cacophony of dance'
If you're keen to see a dancing turkey being chased around a stage, then the Theatre Royal is the place for you.
Not the Nutcracker will feature in the second half of a joint production between Wakatu Dance Theatre and the Canterbury Ballet School on Thursday..
Canterbury Ballet School director Taeya Missevich said it was a very different and contemporary version of the second act of the Christmas favourite The Nutcracker.
Ms Missevich said it focused on what could go wrong at Christmas - hence, the dancing turkey being chased by a chef.
"There are a few tense moments at Christmas and a few funny moments," she said.
Ms Missevich said the first half of the joint show would feature a "cacophony of dance", including contemporary, neo-classical and jazz pieces by dancers from both schools.
"I think we'll get a Grammy for all the different music we have used," she said.
