BEYOND THE LOOKING GLASSES OF TIME AND SPACE, ALICE MAKES NEW GIRLFRIENDS AND STAYS ON COURSE IN A FANCIFUL JOURNEY SOWN WITH THE SEEDS OF SCIENCE.
We couldn’t give up on Alice when she was off to such a good start. In this continuation of her adventures, the other side of the looking glass is a little more worrisome than wonderland. Here, Alice reencounters the White and Red Queens, now even loonier, chats with living flowers and a fat egg-headed Humpty-Dumpty who claims that even the meaning and shape of words is relative. In this strange world, everything works upside down: time, memory, distances, up, down, reality, and the virtual. Alice defies gravity to fly through a picture of stairs and meets heroines who could be her descendants: Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, Raymond Queneau’s Zazie, and Rose, a contemporary girl. Speaking of which, who is in whose dream? What’s for sure is that Alice is forever in Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota’s beautiful dream of total theatre
