Lewis After Wonderland

Lewis After Wonderland

A collaboration between Andrea Santato and Lucía Piquero, with music by Alberto García.
Based on Lewis Carroll’s poem “A Boat Beneath a Sunny Sky”, this piece considers the life of the writer after “Alice in Wonderland” and after Alice herself (the real Alice). He recognises that she “haunts” him, and we want to explore the idea that his past artistic achievement is appearing to him in his later life as some kind of burden, as well as the posibility of Alice as an idea of childhood, of youth, chasing him when his own childhood is so far away. What happened to Alice after her trip down the rabbit hole? What happens to all of us when we abandon our Wonderlands and grow up?
Performed as part of Cloud Dance Festival in July 2011 and Platform AD in November 2011
