Alice in Dade-land
You can view Lewis Carrolls classic story Alice in Wonderland through many different lenses. Theres the Disney scope, which renders it an innocent, happily ending tale; the acid-laced goggles that focus on Alices trippy hallucinations of grinning cats and anxious white rabbits; and the philosophers view, which sees the deep theories pulsing beneath the seemingly nonsensical narrative. Now theres even a South Florida lens, through which dance, song, and colorful video projections create a world where Alice is a Catholic schoolgirl wearing an Alexander McQueen-inspired plaid dress while interacting with majestic macaws and a character described as a combination of a turtle and a Miami Dolphins football player. If youve ever thought the Magic City is a beautiful, subtropical wasteland of bright hues and nonsense, you might have subconsciously willed this production, a theatrical adaptation by locals Stephanie Ansin and Fernando Calzadilla.
