takes place at the intersection of Alice in Wonderland and Blade Runner. Audiences travel down the rabbit hole with the performers into the mystery and terror of childhood in a post-apocalyptic world, where the rules of the game are unknown to the players and can change in the blink of an eye.

The set by Mark Nayden is a painted wall that gives the impression of a billboard or tent. The colors are brilliant and playful, but the images of bodies and text are dark and ominous. The music by Deirdre Broderick creates a shifting and powerful sonic landscape. Costumes by Christine Joly de Lotbinniere are beautifully painted, and look as if they have been eaten by acid, or rescued from a rubble heap and re-assembled with decadent elegance.

About Wonderland: . . . she engineers her end-of-this-world nightmare brilliantly. Movement takes ordeal or transformation as its subject; text or song seize the spirit of movement. The vision of life as brutalizing gives the work an almost terrifying energy and turns performers into survivors.
