Clara's Trip

Clara’s Trip: A Nutcracker Story + Giveaway

Christmas is coming to the heart of Uptown Charlotte, and what better way to celebrate the season than a night out at the theater. Caroline Calouche & Co are presenting Clara’s Trip: A Cirque & Dance Nutcracker Story, that gives a contemporary twist on the beloved holiday classic.

Clara is a young adult who attends Mr. and Mrs. Flowers holiday party. She is beautiful, enthusiastic and clumsy. At the party Clara meets Beau and falls madly in love. While dancing with Beau, she trips over her own two feet and is whisked off to the hospital to learn that her ankle is broken. Clara dreams that night of her get-well gifts springing to life.

About Caroline Calouche & Co.

Founded in 2005, Caroline Calouche & Co. evolved from years of independent choreography and performance in the U.S. and Europe. Caroline Calouche gathered a small group of 3 dancers to debut the contemporary dance company with Risk in her hometown of Gastonia, North Carolina. Since the initial performance, CC & Co. has performed in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

In 2006, Caroline Calouche began her explorations of blending contemporary dance with aerial dance in harness and fabric. The company’s reputation for providing innovative, entertaining and edgy work was pushed to another level with the aerial work. With the increase of performances and touring, CC & Co. continues to connect to their home community along with communities that they visit with their outreach programs in all age, ethnic and social groups.
