It’s no secret that Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland were pretty much terrifying. Being trapped in an alternate universe accessed by rabbit hole and full of rude caterpillars and murderous queens sounds like the premise of one trippy nightmare. That’s the idea behind choreographer Angel Castro’s Underland:White Nightmare.
His evening-length piece reinterprets the Lewis Carroll classic as a twisted contemporary and athletic dance work. Castro’s Halo Movement Collective will present two performances of the work, each complemented by visual art and fashion. This year’s performance promises the same eerie setting as last year’s debut but, thanks to some dough raised through Kickstarter, Halo has expanded the cast, created new costumes, and will feature fresh art installations.
See a new side of Alice at 7 and 9 p.m. at Studio 3D, 1625 East Jefferson Street, on Saturday, November 15. Tickets are $10 in advance via halo movement.wix.com/danceartfashion#!lifestyle/c14ak, $12 at the door, and an extra $5 for VIP seats.
