Genre: Drama, Festival

By Stranger Theatre, as part of the Alice in Wonderland Puppet Festival

All the way from Toronto, Stranger Theater brings their version of Alice to HERE. "And What Alice Found There" brings to life Lewis Carroll's writing of Alice in Wonderland, the real Alice, and the world in which they lived. Using a mixture of sources from Carroll's two famous novels, letters and other writings, we begin with a sunny day on the river and travel to far darker places. The story examines childhood, love, and the nature of creation. Alice Liddell's journey through Victorian times mirrors Alice in Wonderland's journey through the hallucinatory landscape of her author's imagination, where nothing is as it seems.

Stranger Theater's new work is a collaboration between an all-female group of performers, puppeteers and video artists, reworking a classic text to create a multi-media theatrical adventure using physical theater, puppetry, slide images, video, stop-motion animation, and a little tap dancing. Bizarre, visually stunning, funny and absurd, this is an enticing look at the troubled friendship that gave birth to a masterpiece.
