Alice in Wonderland
by Lloyd Rose
About the Play
The award-winning, movement-based company Synetic Theater continues expanding their repertoire of classic literature adaptations with Alice in Wonderland. The whimsical Alice tumbles down the rabbit hole soon finding herself in the mysterious world of Wonderland. Synetic's darker adaptation of Lewis Carroll's tale will bring to life classic characters such as the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, and the murderous Queen of Hearts with Synetic's signature physical style, directed by Paata Tsikurishvili with choreography by Irina Tsikurishvili and adapted by Lloyd Rose. Synetic Theater emerged from the creative vision of founders Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili, Georgian artists who moved to the United States in the 1990s. The Tsikurishvilis combine traditions of the Caucuses with distinctly American styles to tell classic stories through movement, music, technology and visual arts. Synetic’s unique brand of physical theatre has earned the company 116 Helen Hayes Award nominations and 24 Awards.
