Alice. is an original, company-devised production that promises familiar characters transformed and side-lined themes explored as the audience follows Alice on her journey through Wonderland a world which rejects everything she has learned and come to expect invigorated by daring movement (and a little Rock n' Roll)!
Six actors, with their bodies alone, will create and remix Lewis Carroll's classic 'Wonderland', bringing to life tidal waves of tears, hookah-equipped mushrooms, wild tea parties and a rabbit hole that extends to the center of the earth. Using a unique combination of theater and dance methods, the show includes Ballet, Jazz, Viewpoints, Suzuki, Noh, and Kyogen influences attracting theater, dance, and non-traditional arts fans alike. Evolving over the past two years, Alice. has seen many different incarnations everything from a two-minute piece at SOMArts, to a fifty-minute musical workshop edition in collaboration with Barbara Damashek.
For the first time in its full format, in conjunction with the Theatre of Yugen (part of the ARTbursts series) and funded by Theatre Bay Area's CA$H Grant, Director Allison Combs retells this classic tale of one individual's adventures through the surreal and the extraordinary, while examining themes of transition, alienation, and courage in the face of the unknown.
