Cirque Roots presents Alice OnLine (AOL) Saturday, December 12th at the Tucson Museum of Art. Enjoy an evening at the mad tea party filled with theatrics, circus, tea fare, and live music.
AOL is a satire based on the connection between online social media and the ridiculous world of Wonderland. The story is told through witty theatrics, high-flying stilt acrobatics, daring partner acrobatics, modern hoop dance, and video projection. Joining in on the fun are Mik & Scott, a live, roaming two-person band offering funky fresh sounds.
Set at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, Alice is forced to explore the impact of being in a surreal environment and struggles with personal and social identity. Each character she meets embodies a different personality in wonderland, as would commonly be seen on social media. You are invited to be part of Alice's adventure with sweet and savory tapas and specialty beverages. Doors open an hour before showtime, so come early to lounge around in our lavish wonderland!
*All ages welcome, but subtle mature comedy...
**No tickets sold at the door.
