…It needed a very bold spirit to take on “The Nutcracker”, that monster of classical ballet set to music by Tchaikovsky, and traditionally shown during the Christmas season. But dancer and choreographer Hannah Ma had no misgivings about presenting her show entitled <<Nussknacker – Das Fest>> at the Luxembourg National Theatre last week-end. A “21st Century” version of the ballet, something between a fairy tale and a satire of our society that surprised, amused and baffled us… (M. Bur, Luxemburger Wort)


…a message of peace and tolerance… (M. Bur, Luxemburger Wort) 

…the choreography dissect everyday scenes with a lightness of touch, in the way Sasha Waltz once did… ( K. Schug, Trierischer Volksfreund)




Hannah Mas work with The People United and the creation H.E.R.O.E.S were choosen to be published as part of „ Kunst in der Einwanderungsgesellschaft- Beiträge der Künste für das Zusammenleben in Vielfalt“- edited by Bertelsmann Stiftung and the German UNESCO commission
