Netherlands-based troupe Theater Gajes bring their award-winning open-air theatre to Toronto to tell the fantastical story of Alice in Wonderland.
Floating high above the crowds on one-metre-high stilts, Theater Gajes present their interpretation of the well-loved Lewis Carroll story. Set to live music, this enchanting, interactive production features hilarious banter and highly physical performances with a 15-member cast in colourful costumes weaving through the audience with oversized props.
Follow Alice into the weird but wonderful world of Wonderland, amid odd creatures and whimsical characters who try to convince you that they only exist in your imagination. The unexpected storyline twists and turns promise to entertain fans of all ages.
"Performing in the middle of the crowd, the spectators are within touching distance of the actors, and so become part of our scenery. They are seduced, and then drawn into the captivating and moving story." -- Theater Gajes
