Having a wonderful time at wonder.land
Last week saw two of Fever’s own don their culture caps and head down to The National Theatre for a modern day adventure into wonder.land – the ‘dot’ providing the crucial distinction between Lewis Carroll’s iconic story and the digital masterpiece we witnessed!
An extraordinarily elegant combination of live theatre and digital technology, we can safely say that wonder.land is like no other stage production you will ever see. The performance follows heroine Aly, an inner-city teenager, in a coming-of-age adventure that explores the blurred boundaries between our online and offline lives.
Wonder.land provides an unforgiving portrayal of the pressures that come with teenage life in the digital age, and at times can sit uncomfortably with the audience. It is by no means hard watching however, with a truly hilarious ensemble of characters that you couldn’t make up.
The music is unreasonably catchy (which comes as no surprise, we wouldn’t expect anything less as the brainchild of Blur frontman Damion Albarn) the costumes are completely OTT, and the sets are borderline hallucinogenic – in summary, we can’t recommend it enough.
