Alice's Wonderland

Have you ever quarrelled with Time or visited a forest where things have no names? Isn’t it weird that the body of Snap-Dragonfly is made of plum pudding?

Alice’s Wonderland is a musical performance based on the famous novel by Lewis Carroll. Together with Alice’s son, we embark on a journey through the maze of memory, where a human (or perhaps the Mock Turtle?) can slip into themselves or extend like a telescope. Humpty Dumpty explains what ‘borogoves’ and ‘raths’ are. The Queen of Hearts plays croquet with mallets of the live flamingoes. In the well of childhood and in the graveyard of clocks, we discover the jars of orange marmalade and, above all, the recipe for saving the world from oblivion.
Songs with lyrics by Sławomir Narloch to music by Jakub Gawlik are performed live by The Mad Hatters Orchestra.

The performance is recommended for parents with children over 10 years old.

The performance based on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll translated by Maciej Słomczyński. The name of the character Mock Turtle translated by Antoni Marianowicz.
