Alice and the Black Hole Blues
  • Edinburgh Fringe

This world premiere devised theater piece imagines that Lewis Carrolls Alice in Wonderland falls through a black hole and meets five visionaries who challenge societal assumptions about women and science. Hypatia, Marie Curie, Vera Rubin, Rosalind Franklin and Lise Meitner prove that even through you cannot see it, it does exist. Developed in collaboration with San Francisco professional theatre company, Word for Word, whose theatrical style presents works of fiction literally as theyre written on the page. Alice journeys through worlds of text, looping soundscapes and musical comedy to discover the black-hole blues.
