Alice In Wonderland Bedlam
LEWIS Carroll's immortal story of Alice
has been told and retold a great many times in a dizzying variety of ways, from
Disney's popular movie to the but much darker version by the Czechoslovakian
filmmaker, Jan Svankmajer.
Now the Texas Woman's University have brought
a genuinely delightful vision of the story to the appropriately named Bedlam
Theatre, in a show which spoke to both adults and children just as the original
Lake Simons and John Dyer, co-creators of this new production
somehow straddled the Czech and Disney versions, building a whimsical, yet
slightly creepy world using movement, music, puppetry and almost abstracted
All of the characters were represented exquisitely as
puppets, except for Alice, who alternated between puppet and the very human
Brandianne Kramer in an outstanding portrayal of an evergreen icon.
