The Dance Current

Synopsis

In the classic fairy-tale of Clara and the Nutcracker Prince, she rescues him from the sword of the evil Mouse King. But, in 2020, evil is all the uncertainties that torment a fallen prince in pursuit of a career in the world of ballet. Separated from his family during the lockdown, Alex, a 20-year-old struggling dancer, spends the cold, pandemic ridden winter in isolation and is forced to re-examine everything that was once familiar and is no longer, until he meets his Clara. Will he find the resolve to continue on his journey?

Fallen Prince captivates the viewer by sharing a story of personal triumph made possible through the fantastical capabilities of dance.

The Dance Current

Fallen Prince is a reimagination of live performance during a period devoid of gatherings. Goh Ballet’s ambitious undertaking succeeds in capturing the magic of The Nutcracker for people of all age groups, especially children.

Right from the curtain rising through the following two hours of the outstanding production, surprise and delight followed one after another.
