Take a peek into a 'curiouser' Looking Glass

Come Into the Looking Glass. To a place where deep secrets, dark fears, light dreams and carefree whims all come true. When you look in the mirror what do you see?

Into the looking Glass is an innovative new dance theatre work for the 2009 New Zealand Fringe Festival featuring elements of improvisation, exciting choreography and original text, promising to whisk the audience away from reality to fantasy.

From the ridiculous and the extreme, the silly and the serious, Into the looking Glass will experiment with contemporary dance and other mediums all colliding to create on original new work.

Drawing from their experiences of working with New Zealand's leading contemporary dance company Footnote Dance, Anita Hunziker and Sarah Knox are not only performing but also fulfilling the roles of lighting, ticketing, stage management, costuming and even pouring cups of tea for the audience, which is limited to 30 people each night for Into the Looking Glass's six-show run.

Into the Looking Glass will be a mix of theatre, contemporary dance, and text exploring the experiences of a dancers career, all tied together by the fantasy world of Alice in Wonderland as the Footnote Dance Studio on Cuba Street will be transformed into a representation of Lewis Carroll's fantastical vision.
