Dutch premiere of Brendan Shea’s surreal adaption of the classic tale
Alice, a typical modern teenager, trades places with Mary-Ann, the Wonderland version of herself. Now Alice must travel through a fantastical, psychedelic dreamscape, challenged by Carroll’s canonical characters every step of the way. Transforming every time she eats or drinks, Alice is played by six different actresses, each evoking a different aspect of adolescence.
ALICE VS. WONDERLAND is a fast-paced, whimsical and at the same time frightening adaption of the classical tale, remixing the original tones and accents of the story into a new, modern experience.
