Alice in Wonderland
What better way to celebrate Asheville Contemporary Dance Theatre’s 39 years of Modern Dance and the New Studio’s 47 years of dance education than performing one of their favorite pieces: “Alice in Wonderland.” As the students of the New Studio of Dance and ACDT bring you on a journey to Wonderland, they create a dance theatre experience unlike any other interpreted by the wacky and creative minds of Susan and Giles Collard.
New Studio of Dance’s “Alice and Wonderland” promises to be a surreal experience that is playful, tongue-in-cheek, yet filled with adventure and fun. You may already know Alice, Mad Hatter, and the Queen of Hearts, but how long has it been since you’ve heard the story of the Duchess and her pig/child? This dance theatre production will bring you back to the book by Lewis Carroll, where it all started.
“Alice in Wonderland” runs for two weekends at the BeBe Theatre, so there is plenty of opportunity to see the latest from the New Studio of Dance and Asheville Contemporary Dance Theatre. These productions always sell out, so if you are looking for a playful and colorful show where children turn into doors, cats disappear and reappear, and Alice grows from tall to small and back again, you’ll want to get your tickets today. You just might discover what is really going on with that duchess and her pig/child and why the White Rabbit has a head made out of wood!
