The Velveteen Rabbit

Nov 25 2017 — Dec 10 2017
This Performance is now closed

ODC/Dance enlivens Margery Williams’ classic tale of a well-worn nursery rabbit that becomes real. Told through music, dance, and a powerful narrative, The Velveteen Rabbit celebrates the unique relationship between a little boy and his stuffed rabbit, and the enduring power of love.

Brimming with wit, festive costumes, madcap characters, and the perfect amount of holiday cheer, ODC/Dance, one of America’s most exciting and acclaimed contemporary dance companies, returns to Yerba Buena Center for the Arts to present this one of a kind Bay Area production.
