“If everybody minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does.”Alice in Wonderland
Step into a fabulous wonderland, a world of upside down, a world where animals talk, little girls change sizes, and birds are very touchy. Here, a Caterpillar has questions about identity, a Mad Hatter and March Hare are stuck in time, and flowers are highly judgmental about nothing at all.
As enchanting as all these weird characters are, the true charm behind Alice’s adventures is the girl herself. No matter how bizarre wonderland gets, Alice consistently refuses to accept the false, unpredictable reality around her. “I don’t know who I am,” she admits, but she firmly believes that she is herself; she can’t figure out what time it is, but she knows time is not stagnant; and, in the end, she does not know what justice is, but she knows the courtroom of the Red Queen is an utter farce.
Join Alice on her trip down the rabbit hole into a world of complete unpredictability!
