BONNIE CURTIS’ ‘WONDERLAND’

 

“A dream caused by the surrender of a butterfly into the fog….”

Bonnie Curtis’ latest production WONDERLAND is strange, dark and challenging. It is divided into four segments, taking us on a journey in an alternative world.

The entrance foyer is partially blocked off and we enter a large space with various hanging lanterns and a tall, semi transparent vertical box with pulsating lights. Various branches in luminous UV colours  for example orange, mango and yellow are also part of the scenery. When the show begins, after we have been handed our cards, Woody, our tour guide, explained that the cards had different designs depending on what rooms we saw and the sequence they were viewed in.

For two of the sections the whole audience was included , for the other two we were directed to various rooms ( I saw ‘The Face’ room and ‘The Mirror’ room’  – there was also a ‘Chair’ room).There was different music for each but a distinctive melody was repeated each time at the conclusion of the segment so we knew to move on.

GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS : BONNIE CURTIS PROJECTS ANNOUNCES ITS DEBUT SEASON

GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS is a double bill of original works presented by Sydney’s daring new dance company, Bonnie Curtis Projects.

Staged in a heritage church, the show gives audiences a personal and intimate experience, at times blurring the lines between audience and performer.

The title piece Girls Girls Girls is a gutsy new work by choreographer and filmmaker Bonnie Curtis. Exploring the experiences of modern Australian women, their deepest, darkest thoughts and insecurities are paraded on stage.

Hilarious, clichéd, and deeply moving, this performance is an unconventional work sure to provoke discussion.

Kate Garrett’s work When I Was… transports audiences to another time and place, discovering the joyful stories of generations past.

Garrett’s piece features music by British folk band Steeleye Span, and explores the profoundly human experiences of love, misjudgement and loss.

GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS represents the first full-length work of Bonnie Curtis Projects.

DATES FOR THE DIARY
