, a new work by Michael Sommers, inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland
. With strange objects, abstract puppets, projections, and a madrigal choir, Sommers tells his story of a Grandfather, a little girl and a rabbit in a moment of unforgivable instinct, loss and consequence, recalling the “simple sorrows of a Wonderland long ago”.
Sommers explores the unknown and the unknowable, wandering into thoughts and questions that manifest in a miniature world from curiouser and curiouser. A HOLE
invites the audience to ‘Go down the Rabbit Hole’ into a world of wonder, chaos, and discovery, where “nothing but out-of-the way things happen.” Be reassured - it has nothing to do with the real world.
DRINK ME. EAT ME. Mysterious potables and delectable tarts will be served to transport the audience from in to out, up to down, small chamber to garden party, never once considering how in the world they will get out again.
