Alice in the land of Dragon – performance for children

Through play and competition, clamor and hubbub, silence, singing, and laughter, a few of those tears that made “the pool of tears”, we‛ve weaved the poetry of Jova Jovanovic Zmaj into the famous Lewis Carroll‛s novel Alice in Wonderland. By

By merging the two great authors, we also toyed with the memories from our childhoods, we were “chased by verses”, we were being confused by what was “big”, and what it was that was “small”. We were haunted by the overwhelming question “Who am I?”. Audiences will witness the creative act of making the performance within the performance by its own characters.

Returning to the roots of a serious and quality literary act and through play, children will be introduced to a dramaturgy and the mise-en- scene processes, of this, or any other play. A game within a game, a play within a play – they strive to initiate creativity and joy for life and art.
