‘Thematically sophisticated, physically vigorous and visually bold’ The Times
ALiCE tells the story of a woman, or perhaps a child, unsure of her identity and where she is going . Escaping or exploring, discovering the powers within her changing body. The world around her is different, curious, and compelling – at times absolutely bonkers.
Following the internationally acclaimed success of her adaptation of Pinocchio, award-winning choreographer Jasmin Vardimon’s newest creation is a re-imagining of the groundbreaking classic, Alice in Wonderland and promises a sensory feast of arresting images, powerful performers and striking kinetic scenery.
ALiCE excited audiences in its first UK tour this Autumn. An innovative digital VR experience is also available to support performances.
Co-commissioned by Sadler’s Wells and Dance East, ICCI and Kent County Council.
Jasmin Vardimon Company presents a brand-new adaptation of the classic tale, Pinocchio. Based on the original book by Collodi and performed by Vardimon’s multi-talented dancers, Pinocchio brings to life the famous marionette as he embarks on a fantastic journey to become a human boy.
Showcasing Vardimon’s uniquely theatrical choreographic and directorial style, Pinocchio combines physical theatre, quirky characterisation, innovative technologies, text and dance to examine the idea of what it means to be human.
With insightful humour, engaging drama and an acute observation of behaviour Pinocchio takes audiences on a wonderful journey of discovery through the parameters of this timeless and beloved fable.
