and what Alice found there

and what Alice found there a multimedia puppet piece by Stranger Theatre based on the works of Lewis Carroll
Performed by Sarah Cormier, Simone Rosenberg, and Christina Serra Animation, puppetry and video by Lea Ambros, Adrienne Connolly and Simone Rosenberg Written and Directed by Kate Cayley Thursday, Friday + Saturday, April 27 – 30 | 8pm | Sunday matinee April 30 | 2pm Suggested donation $10 | limited seating
Using puppets, physical theatre, animation, slides and video projection, this new piece weaves together a series of narratives from Carroll’s two Alice stories and the life of Lewis Carroll, illuminating both through examinations of Victorian photography, cartography and popular science. Bizarre, dark, funny and absurd, the performance combines many techniques to explore themes of imperialism, maps, madness, and the nature of creation. and what Alice found there takes the form of a lecture by the neurotic figure of Lewis Carroll as a spindly puppet, which is interrupted by his rebellious creation. His lecture ruminates on the nineteenth century, while Alice travels through a strange landscape, disrupting and commenting on his view of her. The author tries to retain hold on his creation, while sketching out the troubling history of his century, as Alice struggles with the world he has put her in. for more info: strangertheatre.ca
