Bonnie Curtis Projects Invites You to Escape Your Everyday Life
An Immersive Experience Where You Decide the Story
Madness. Mischief. Delight. A dream caused by the surrender of a butterfly into the fog.
This is how award-winning dance company Bonnie Curtis Projects describes their new work – Wonderland.
Bonnie Curtis Projects (BCP) is Sydney’s daring indie dance company. BCP creates fun, interactive and unpredictable performances.
Escape from reality and journey into the surreal and bizarre when Wonderland premieres in Sydney in August.
Presented at the heritage-listed Annandale Creative Arts Centre, Wonderland is the story of a surreal, alternate universe where you decide the story. This interactive and immersive experience takes you on an unreal adventure that suspends the limits of imagination and reality.
Led by its founder and namesake, Bonnie Curtis, the indie dance company is a diverse ensemble of performers that includes some of Sydney’s best independent dancers.
The artistic director, Bonnie, says Wonderland allows the audience to escape from day to day life. “Wonderland is a world where the reality of it’s inhabitants is a little bizarre and somewhat ridiculous. I wanted to create a fun and interactive performance that takes the audience on a journey into the unknown, where things are not what they seem.”
Bonnie is inspired by her childhood imagination, where the unreal was real. “Wonderland is inspired by the paintings of Salvador Dali, the bizarre world of Alice in Wonderland, along with the Choose Your Own Adventure and Goosebumps book series. These are all things that shaped my childhood and inspired my imagination as a child and young adult.”
As the show begins, the audience enters Wonderland as a group. Throughout the evening, the audience is split up and taken on different journeys. Their journey takes them through surreal worlds where the real is unreal. Their path is determined by a seemingly innocent decision they make before the show begins.
