  • Overview
    This is a story of a young girl that lives more in the world of her creative imagination than in so called ‘real life.’ Being very bored with her sisters attempt to read her a book that has no pictures, she suddenly sees a White Rabbit with a waist coat and pocket watch running in the meadow and decides to follow him to find out where he is going. She follows him down a very deep rabbit hole where she comes to a world beyond normal existence, where sense and nonsense are interchanged and mixed up. She doesn’t really know any more if she is her self or someone else! This world, nonetheless follows it’s own fantastic internal logic, and takes Alice to meet wonderful characters that guide and misguide her around this nonsense world, like the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat, the Mock Turtle and so on, till she gets fed up and realizes that they are all just a “Pack of Cards” at which moment she wakes up with her head on her sister’s lap and tells her about her fantastic adventures.
    In the end it is up to us to decide which of the two worlds is real, and if they are not very similar after all.
