ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND
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.” - Alice
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
A tribute to unreason, fantasy and anarchy.
Follow Alice down the rabbit hole to a wondrous land, where anything can happen. A land where rabbits can speak and the Chesire Cat leads you astray. Where queens are scary and brutally chop of your head!
Dancer and performer Tilde Knudsen tells her version of the beloved story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll inspired by a suitcase full of imaginative costumes by designer Susan Marshall. 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.
Tilde Knudsen shares:
"Normally when you create a performance the costumes are designed, created and introduced to the stage towards the end of the production progress. But with Susan Marshall we have worked differently: We used the costumes and the geometrical shapes as the starting point from day one and from there we enlivened the figures from the fairy tale. It has been an exciting and divergent working process, which has provided the performance with a strong visual expression."
The figures from Alice in Wonderland are enlivened with music created by composer Klaus Risager, who with instruments and real sounds has created an atmodpheric soundscape alternating between simplicity, savagery and chaos.

Quotes from the press:
It's a marvelous visual world Susan Marshall have created....
Tilde Knudsen shows us how much can actually be told through body language
ISCENE TRINE WØLDICHE
Using some simple costume elements - including a pile of white, square pieces of paper - Tilde Knudsen easily creates figures such as the Rabbit, queen og 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.
MORTEN HEDE, TEATER AVISEN
Like a black and white chameleon, Tilde Knudsen strongly and smoothly transforms the body in a "conversation" with the music
HELLE BERTRAM FOLKETIDENDE
There is a focus on the imaginative and adventurous, which children are quickly caught by.
