After a life long fascination with Alice in Wonderland, a sense of wonder began to creep into my mind asking, "What if I was Alice? How would I approach life in Wonderland?" I wish to cultivate this experience for a public audience both performed as family shows and adult shows. Each audience member will walk themselves through the chapters of the book represented in each room of the house. The shows are interactive where one can have tea with the Mad Hatter, a chat with the Cheshire Cat, and a game of croquet with the Queen of Hearts. All funding will go toward a stipend for performers and Green production development of "...In WOnderIand" in Wilmington, NC. The show will occupy a beautiful historic home, stimulating our local economy, promoting literary education, and revitalizing performing arts in North Carolina.
Risks and challenges
While funding is hauntingly low in the North Carolina performing arts community,the dancers will not be compensated otherwise, and I feel it necessary to provide them with some pay to encourage professional careers in performance and to establish a serious work ethic in the arts. All funds raised will go directly to the performers, collaborators, and rental space for performance.
The development of this work is important to me as a choreographer as it supports and celebrates the literary genius of Lewis Carroll further emphasizing the value in literary imagination leading to a more creative society.
Community involvement focused on performing arts, literary arts, education, and GO green efforts is the main aim for the " ...In WOnderland" project. The goal is to grow and develop as a living, breathing, literary work that has come to life bringing the local community together and attracting an even greater tourism to Wilmington.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
