‘Alice in Wonderland’ is not a children's book. How far you can strip down a story that is totally familiar?

A new visual dance theatre performance inspired by images and meanings from the classic novel ‘Alice in Wonderland’. The work explores existential questions and archetypal images hidden behind the original text. It aims to peel off layers of the story which include aspects of darkness, irony, fantasy and humour.

We do not stage a representation of Alice’s story. Taking inspiration from it we create our own dimension of the classic novel.  The work reminds and references Alice’s adventures but is stripped down into allegories relating to real life situations.

Alice is a framework. We examine the relationships created between the performers, the audience and the story itself. We structure conditions found in a narrative that systematically violates the established logic of adults. We relate these to real life situations, dressed up with a filter of absurdness, paradox and nonsense. Little Alice, as well as the reader of the text are accustomed to unusual and surreal situations, they are being removed from what feels normal and exposed to facts that are layered with allegorical meanings.
The story feels like a surreal guide to life.
