Alice. Under any circumstances don’t go there

The immortal Alicja of Wonderland entered the stage of the Fredro Theater. For 150 years she has been the guide to many generations of readers through the wonder land of dreams and fantasies. A classic of world literature, “an extraordinary case in the history of literature, when one text contains two completely different books, one for children and the other for very adults” – this time in a modern and surprising version. Together with the protagonist, let’s go on a fantastic journey through the world upside down, where the word “impossible” does not exist, and everything is completely different than we think. A world inhabited by misfits, freaks and eccentrics freely juggling the sences and meaning of words and concepts, where a specific and absurd sense of humor triumphs. Young people will find in it an incredible wealth of imagination and unfettered freedom. Adults – perhaps – a story about maturing and passing away, about reaching the truth about oneself. Together with Alicja, let’s try to cross the gate to another reality, seducing with its unusual image and sound, and see our reflection in the mirror.
