THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS
An old woman suffers from dementia. A young stroke victim struggles to make language. A trans woman claims her identity. All three find themselves in a strange new world. 'Alice' appears in many forms, but when she/they encounter her/their new reflections in the world of Through the Looking Glass, each 'Alice' must choose how to reconcile her/their life-changing experiences with a sense of identity and what that means for their future.
Through the Looking Glass, an immersive theater adaptation of the Lewis Carroll wonderland novels, was developed through The Field NYC's Fieldwork program and Spaceworks Long Island City's Adopt-an-Artist program. The production premiered at The Clearing in Buzzards Bay, MA on October 22, 2016.
