2023 NutRemix™ presented by NIKE

November 17-19 at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts

New Ballet’s NutRemix™, presented by Nike, is an electrifying and innovative production that takes the entire family on a captivating journey with a story set on Memphis’ iconic Beale Street. At the heart of NutRemix lies New Ballet’s mission: pushing artistic horizons and making dance accessible to all.

The show audiences know and love is brought to life by New Ballet Ensemble’s professionals and students, with the return of notable alumni and inaugural NutRemix cast members. Fresh off Broadway, Maxx Reed serves as Creative Director, adding a fresh perspective with new elements. Globally acclaimed dancer, Lil Buck, stars as the Memphis Angel, a role he created. Witness an unparalleled production featuring the Memphis Symphony Orchestra and Big Band, breathing life into classics by Duke Ellington, Booker T. and the MG’s and a remixed classical Tchaikovsky score. Dynamic choreography weaves a rich tapestry of cultural influences, including hip-hop, Memphis Jookin, Spanish dance and West African dance and drumming.

Kick off the holiday season with a one-of-a-kind production!

This was my second year seeing NutRemix™, and it was magical! The show is truly representative of our modern Memphis! There is so much diversity, not only in terms of race, but also music and dance genres, as well as ages. The little mice and soldiers were simply adorable, and Jeremy Bowers was phenomenal as the Memphis Angel! I definitely recommend seeing the show, and I will continue to be a patron in the future!
