Alice’s Room

Choreography Giovanna Velardi
with: Dario Mangiaracina, Emanuela Fenech, Simona Miraglia, Giuseppe Muscarello, Dario Tumminia, Giovanna Velardi, Alice Zanoni
Taking Lewis Carrol’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ as the point of departure, the piece investigates the conflict between today’s “power” – personified by the queen, symbol of a middle-class divested of its authority – and a naivety that means opening up to the many possibilities offered by fantasy. To acquire her identity, a dreaming Alice needs to leave her room; she needs to open up to the world and share; only with irony and by settling her conflict with the queen – representing the rule and super-ego – can she open up to a real world.
