Wonderland

Vanishing Point

In a darkly subversive take on the themes of Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll’s classic tale, Wonderland begins with the mystery of a young woman leaving home and embarking on a dangerous journey.

In a darkly subversive take on the themes of Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll’s classic tale, Wonderland begins with the mystery of a young woman leaving home and embarking on a dangerous journey.

‘In another moment down went Alice, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.’

Wonderland examines the attraction of fame and stardom, the desire for something more, the allure of the erotic and the invasion of pornography into modern popular culture. Dreamlike, edgy and intensely physical, it is a mystery about a door that – once opened – is almost impossible to close, a story about curiosity, temptation and power.

That door leads to a dark place,
A dark and exciting place
But once you open it
Once you enter that place
You can’t come back
Things will not be the same any more.

Please note this performance contains adult themes that may not be suitable for children.

A co-production between Vanishing Point, Fondazione Campania dei Festival - Napoli Teatro Festival Italia, and Tramway, in association with Eden Court.
