A TRIBUTE TO UNREASON, IMAGINATION AND ANARCHY

A non-verbal artistic collaboration between Danish performer Tilde Knudsen and British costume designer Susan Marshall.

 

"I knew who I was this morning, but I've changed a few times since then."

 

Follow Alice down the rabbit hole to a wondrous land, where anything can happen. Dancer and performer Tilde Knudsen tells her version of the beloved story of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll inspired by the suitcase full of imaginative costumes. Based on modular pieces and the simple geometric shapes of circles, triangles and squares, the costumes are just as quirky and changeable as the fairy-tale land behind the locked door.

 

The figures from Alice in Wonderland are enlivened with music created by composer Klaus Risager, who with instruments and real sounds has created an atmospheric soundscape alternating between simplicity, savagery and chaos. 

★★★★

"It's a marvelous visual world Susan Marshall have created... Tilde Knudsen shows us how much can actually be told through body language."

ISCENE

★★★★

"There is a focus on the imaginative and adventurous, which children are quickly caught by."

UNGT TEATERBLOD

"Using some simple costume elements - including a pile of white, square pieces of paper - Tilde Knudsen easily creates figures such as the Rabbit, Queen of hearts, the Caterpillar and of course both the tiny and the tall Alice. The costume design by Susan Marshall is excellent, and the physical characterizations of Tilde Knudsen are very clear."
