Grief and the Holidays

Caring Connections: A Hope and Comfort in Grief Program will hold its annual Grief and the Holidays event on November 19th. Grief and the Holidays is an opportunity for individuals to come together and cope with the loss of a family member or friend while keeping the memory of that loved one alive during the difficult holiday season. This year’s theme is “Loving through Life’s Challenges.” The program’s featured speaker is former NFL star Haloti Ngata (Baltimore Ravens); who will share the story of his grief in the passing of his parents. We also feature music by singer/songwriter Junior Maile. Grief and the Holidays is free and open to the public.

A unique and joyful event, this evening-length production is performed by a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers, a DJ, a violinist, and MC Kurtis Blow, one of hip hop’s founding fathers, who opens the show with a short set. Just like the original, in The Hip Hop Nutcracker, Maria-Clara and the Nutcracker Prince go on a dream adventure battling a gang of mice, visiting the land of sweets and learning the lessons of the holiday season. Innovative digital graffiti and visuals transform the landscape of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s beloved story from traditional 19th Century Germany to the vibrant, diverse sights and sounds of contemporary New York City.  Through this re-mixed and re-imagined version of the classic, the dynamic performers of The Hip Hop Nutcracker take us on a journey that celebrates love, community and the magic of the holiday season.
