In the early Protected content , to entertain young Alice Liddell, Lewis Carroll dreamt up a strange and wonderful world where common sense is nonsense, cats are nihilists, hatters are mad, silkworms are opium addicts, and playing cards are soldiers under the command of a tyrannical Queen of Hearts.

Written in Protected content , Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, followed in Protected content Through the Looking-Glass, was a popular success.

Before long, all British schoolchildren and their parents knew about the escapades of the young Alice who, to dispel the boredom of a summer afternoon, follows a white rabbit sporting a tailcoat and pocket watch as he dashes into his burrow.

From Walt Disney to Tim Burton, artists spanning all disciplines have been inspired by Carroll's rich imagination.

With a new score by Philip Glass, a figurehead of American minimalism, choreographers Amir Hosseinpour and Jonathan Lunn reimagine and reinvent Carroll's fantastical world.

Freed from the original narrative, the dancers of the OnR Ballet play a new gallery of contemporary creatures and characters, joined by actor Sunnyi Melles.
