A new dance adaptation of Alice in Wonderland is coming to Huddersfield this autumn.

Internationally-acclaimed choreographer Jasmin Vardimon will be bringing her national UK dance tour, ALiCE, to the Lawrence Batley Theatre on Wednesday and Thursday September 21 and 22.

Jasmin is one of the UK’s leading female choreographers and was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for services to dance.

Created and choreographed by Jasmin, with design by Guy Bar-Amrrolotz, ALiCE promises a sensory feast of arresting images, powerful performers and striking kinetic scenery in an adaptation of the 1865 novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Alice tells the story of a woman, or possibly a child, who is unsure of her identity and where she is going, whether she is escaping or exploring as she discovers the powers within her changing body. The world around her is different, curious, compelling and, at times, absolutely bonkers.

Exploring the themes of time, identity, rules and authority, Jasmin’s latest work follows the worldwide success of her adaptation of Carlo Collodi’s Pinocchio, which has played to packed houses around the world for the past six years.

Jasmin said: “After two years of the pandemic, I’m delighted to bring new work to the stage, share it with audiences and celebrate the skill and talent of my company’s dancers and collaborators.”

Both shows at the LBT will begin at 7.30pm in the main house. Standard tickets cost £16 and can be purchased by calling the box office on 01484 430528 or online at
