Alice Im Wunderland
Alice Im Wunderland
Buy me, Alice! The cries seem to emanate from all corners – I will make you happy! The temptations are extreme in a wonderland of unlimited offers. Every shopping window is a new promise. Everywhere a more beautiful, successful and hip “I” is waiting for Alice. Every wish is tangible – even if Alice never knew she even had them.
Passing the sleeping shop window dolls of the decoration warehouses, followed by a small audience, Alice meets the strange inhabitants of wonderland in her grotesque and disturbing trip through the world of consumption.
In their performance “Alice im Wunderland”, MS Schrittmacher dissects our consumer behavior as it wavers between needs and insanity with inscrutable humor and an unerring sense for the absurd in daily life.
The shopping center is the stage; Alice, the hero... and the piece? All of us.

Western classical dance enters the modernity of the 20th century: The Ballets russes and the Ballets suédois
