  • Vanessa Kayi says:

    A truly inspired and captivating piece of dance theatre. The skills of the dancers immediately put you at ease and the choreography clearly depics Alice’s wonderland journey. It’s a show you want to watch again and again to spot new parallels, hear new revelations, and leave seeing the world with new profound perspectives on gender and the binary, but also find yourself reflecting on broader topics, such as societal preconceptions based on aesthetics and the external shell of a person. It’s a must see!

    So happy to see this nomination! Such a beautiful piece with beautiful intentions. Self funded work is so inspiring and this one should be accoladed. Everyone involved has created an engaging and vivid re-telling of Alice in Wonderland with the a joyful gender fluidity which empowers all audiences in their expressions, whatever they may be.

    The post show chat moves theatre where it needs to be, where offstage context and practice is dictated by the shows themes, form and intentions – something which as an off-west end show, it has over any show in town.

  • Christina Vasileiadi says:

    One of the most raw, unapologetically beautiful shows I’ve seen. Wonderland is the most perfect spectacle to educate audiences about gender-fluidity and show the special beauty in queerness. I cried so many times during the piece! They need to be doing more and more work like this for everyone to see, so well deserved🌟 every detail was thought out to be the best experience whilst raising awareness. A dream to watch, left the theatre feeling inspired and with a full heart.
